Although it is a medium sized satchel, this leather satchel is still quite big. It will take all your books, computer and paperwork and even some spare clothes for a sleepover if needed. 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 using full grain oiled 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 vintage leather or our Heritage range which will show the signs of wear and usage, was obtain through vegetable tanning, the only ecological tanning process that is 100% chrome-free. Newly vegetable tanned leather can seem a little stiff to begin but the more you wear your satchel the better it will look and feel as the leather will soften and develop a beautiful dark chocolate patina. Note that the oils pressed into the leather might not have completely settled by the time you receive your bag, we therefore recommend that you not wear light colored clothing until the oils have been completely absorbed. To check this, simply rub the leather with a soft tissue and check the tissue for stains.
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.
