Hand Stitched Schoolboy Satchel

Hand Stitched Schoolboy Satchel


The stitching on the handle and along the sides and bottom of this bag are all saddle stitched by hand. Each hole is made with a punch and a hammer, a two needles are passed through in opposite directions, with a knot in the middle to make sure they will not ever come loose.

Both of the two main pockets are big enough to fit a 14 inch laptop, papers, snacks, books, with a smaller pocket in the front for keys, phone, wallet, and other small items. You'll be able to fit everything you need to take with you to school, the office, on the plane, or to the coffee shop.

And it's damn pretty.

Wickett & Craig tannery is one of only two remaining vegetable tanneries left in the United States. They've been tanning leather in the natural and eco-friendly way since 1867. The beautiful finish and rich colors of their english bridle leather develops a worn-in glossy patina over time. Anything made with this leather is only going to get more beautiful over time.

Most buckles are plated with nickel or have artificial patinas. I guess the idea is to make them look like something better than they are? Not these buckles. These are solid brass. Honest. After years of wearing this belt (because it will last for many years) the antique patina that develops will be something you can be proud of.
