At Ruitertassen we only use the best full grain, true vegetable tanned leather we know. Our leather is 100% chrome free so if you have a chrome allergy our bags are made for you. The leather we use is thick, always over 2,3mm in thickness. This makes for a leather that is stiff and that will handle decades of wear and tare without sweat. Our leather will soften with time and use but it will remain strong. As our leather is stiff, make sure that the bag you choose is the right size for you as there won't be much give in the first few months. This particular vintage leather has been soaked in oils. It easily shows scratches and scrapes which gives it the natural vintage look we all love. The oils darken the leather and you will notice that, as the oils dry, your leather satchel will lighten. If you wish for it to remain dark brown, simply use some clear quality leather wax on your bag to nourish the leather.
For the stylish old-school bag amateur, this satchel is highly attractive and of high quality craftsmanship. The Asymmetric vintage satchel is ideal for scholars who need to carry a lot of paperwork, folders and files with them. You may also easily fit a 15 inch laptop in this bag but you will need a protective sleeve for your device as the compartments are true un-padded leather.
