This is my bag. The first ever messenger bag I made took me 24 man hours to cut the pattern and hand stitch every detail. I still carry that bag to this day, and use the basic pattern as the basis for my signature series. This unique messenger bag has an internal and exterior slip pocket for papers in addition to a laptop sleeve and a spot for pens and a cell phone to keep your small items from slipping into the bottom. It also has a convertible function that allows the bag to be worn as a backpack or slung over the shoulder as a satchel. As with all my leather products, this bag is hand stitched using the best parts of the hide. The bag pictured is a beautiful oil tanned "pull up" type leather that will develop a beautiful patina unique to its owner. I can make a custom order with a natural leather if desired. There is a limited number available as this bag series is still hand stitched and requires much more time and effort.
