Have you been looking for that epic leather satchel that will never go out of style? Not to mention all of your friends and relatives will be jealous of? Look no further. Our Escape satchel is just the ticket. A slightly downsized version of our popular Classic, the Escape is the perfect size for around town, from Tokyo to Tacoma, or as your every day, go-to, cry if you lose it satchel.
Craftsmanship of this degree is a dying art, and we are fortunate to have a partner and friend who has a small cadre of craftsmen that have been working for his family business for decades making some of the worlds finest hand stitched horse saddles and tack. We are working in partnership, taking those skills in a new direction, to create satchels of exceptional quality and affordability, to a generation accustomed to mass produced nylon cookie cutter crap, but yearn for reality. An actual individual sat down, cut the pattern out of a hide, and hand stitched this satchel for you. For those who appreciate Old World master work, I do believe they'll find no finer satchel. The leather is created by a small tannery for us, using traditional tannic bark vegetable tanning, this heavy duty, high quality satchel is made entirely of sturdy water buffalo hide. The leather has been tanned to achieve a distressed finish that shows wear and mileage phenomenally. It will soon look like it's been at your side forever. And it most likely will.
Heavy duty brass hardware complements the leather, with hand hammered solid copper rivets in key reinforcement spots and stout nylon threads keep it together. The interior is natural suede from the hide, and a small cell phone sized pocket and pen loops keep go-to items handy. It's a great size for your iPad, and an instant heirloom.
