Handmade Italian leather traditional messenger bag / map case / satchel.
This beautiful satchel is perfect for your everyday carrying needs.
Made from 1.8mm - 2mm Badalassi Carlo Wax Cognac leather from Tuscany. This is a premium pull up leather, which means that the waxes stuffed in to the hide during tanning 'pull up' as the leather folds, giving it a wonderful aged character that will develop over time.
All the hardware, so rivets, buckles, D-rings, tri-glide and trigger clips are solid brass. The whole thing is hand-stitched with 0.8mm waxed thread. This bag is built to last a lifetime.
It measures approx 12 x 10 x 3 inches so will easily take a large tablet and whatever other stuff you need to get through the day. The one you see here holds a 10.2 inch iPad in a hard case in an internal pocket.
The interior pocket and shoulder strap pad are made from English goat skin from Tusting & Burnett. The detachable / adjustable strap is made from 1.25 inch wide cotton webbing. The shoulder strap pad makes sure it'll stay comfortable all day. There's also a carry handle.
These things are entirely hand crafted by me and made to order. It takes several days from start to finish. Lead time is normally 2 to 3 weeks.
The bag you see here has optional monogramming - let me know your initials when ordering if this is something you'd like.
This bag is truly something to treasure, and I hope you'll get as much satisfaction from owning one as I do making them.
