Handcrafted to be the last leather bag you'll ever need. With pockets for your iPad, iPhone, cards, pens and laptop, this messenger bag will keep you organized. 

The Making Of-
This satchel is entirely handcrafted without any machines. The leather is cut by hand. It is then hand stitched using the time-honored saddle stitch method. This method is stronger and more durable than machine stitching. The edges are slicked and finished by hand. Everything is done just as traditional leather-smiths and saddle-makers have always done it, slowly and surely. 

The Pockets-
This briefcase has just the right pockets. Inside, there is a large main compartment, a pocket for your iPad or legal pad, a slot for business or credit cards and a pen slot. Externally, there is an sleeve for papers. Within that back sleeve there is a pocket for your iPhone.The Shoulder Strap- 
The strap is adjustable and removable. A solid brass buckle allows you to adjust the length of the strap as you like. Snaps at both ends of the strap allow you to remove the strap entirely. A lightly padded hand stitched should pad makes carrying this briefcase comfortable.

The Straps -
Tucked discretely behind the solid brass buckles are snaps. To open quickly and conveniently, just pull up on the strap. 

The Shoulder Strap and Pad-
This should strap is adjustable and removable. A solid brass buckle allows you to alter the length of the strap as you desire. Snaps at both ends of the strap allow for complete removal. A lightly padded should pad makes this bag comfortable to carry. 

The Leather -
The leather is full grain 6 ounce leather. Its tanned in one of Americans oldest tannery. The leather is made to age beautifully. It will darken naturally with use and time. The satchel has been conditioned with American-made cream to increase water resistance. 

The Hardware-
The buckles and rings on this case are made of solid brass. All rivets and snaps are handset.
