Although it is a medium sized satchel, this leather satchel is still quite big. It will take all your books, computer and paperwork. What we love about this model is the though nylon lined cushioned laptop compartment that will truly protect your device while in transport. To sum up its layout, this satchel has two large compartments separated by a zipped, full depth pocket (ideal for keeping important documents flat), a laptop compartment and two front asymmetric pockets, the larger of which will accept small notepads. As with all our satchels, it comes with the classic Ruitertassen key holder.
This satchel is handcrafted in full grain leather. The use of quality full grain hides, which are no less than 2,5mm thick, enables us to build strong satchels that will hold their shape throughout the years. Working with such thick hides is an art we mastered over the last century. Our threads, fitting, zippers are all especially made to fit and serve our leather. The deep black color of this satchel, through which the veins of the leather are just barely visible, was obtain through vegetable tanning, the only ecological tanning process that is 100% chrome-free. Newly vegetable tanned leather can seem a little stiff but the more you wear your satchel the better it will look and feel as the leather will soften and develop a beautiful patina.
This polyvalent satchel is fully lined with a strong Italian textile which also covers the cushioned laptop compartment. Doctors and teachers will find the space offered by this satchel to be just right. Large enough to accept oversized documents, a good sized laptop and two compartment load of papers.
