This briefcase is as simple as they come, handcrafted with those who need to carry little amounts of paperwork in mind. Behind the main front flap over that closes with a single clip-lock hidden behind a buckle, you will find one front pocket, right behind is a full length and depth zipped private compartment, ideal for keeping documents nice and flat. It separates the front pocket from the main compartment. Our clients have found that a 13" MacBook laptop will just about fit in this briefcase without a case but it will be a snug fit.
We use thick full grain, vegetable tanned leather hides to handcraft our satchels and briefcases. The leather for this briefcase will be no thinner that 2.3mm and that makes for a strong bag that will protect its content. Some might find our leather to be too stiff, to those we explain that full grain leather needs to be broken into, worn, used and loved before it can be truly enjoyed for decades to come. We tan our leather the old fashion way, in barrels for weeks with vegetable extracts, this means that our leather contains no traces of chrome and is eco friendly. The vintage brown leather has been pressed with oils to give it its pull up effect. As it ages your briefcase will lighten, if you want to keep it a dark brown, simply use a clear leather wax or cream and nourish your Ruitertassen briefcase.
The Ruitertassen Briefcase is a wonderful bag for professionals who need to be mobile and efficient. The single buckle makes it quick to open and its simple layout makes it easy to use. It will just about accept a small laptop. This is a sturdy briefcase that will handle years of intense commuting well.
