For little ones heading off to school (or on epic journeys trekking across the wild, intemperate steppes of Backyardia) there is no greater magic than having ones very own adventure satchel. A pint-sized version of the classic, this elegant, sophisticated, workmanlike little bag can withstand the daily rigors of little explorers and scholars alike. Carry it by the tanned vegetable leather handle or wear the matching straps as a backpack. Straps adjust via back buckles and clip to the top. Two quick release clip clasps on the front make it easy to open and close. A quick leather punch to shorten the straps would make it possible to strap it on to a bicycle's handlebars. A wide open body (with key clip) can hold any number of necessary items, from extra sweater to bug collection to ubiquitous snack, and the front pocket is perfectly sized for wildlife journal and/or dog-eared copy of "Harriet The Spy".
About the line: Made in a traditional tannery established in 1873, the iconic leather bags have been hand-made in Belgium with the same loving attention to detail for almost 100 years. The signature "Belgian leather" is chrome-free, 100% vegetable-tanned, uncolored, and simply finished with a natural oil. The resulting full-grain leather construction is designed to withstand the rigors of whatever adventures-work-week, wanderlust, or otherwise-you can throw at them. The leather shows (glorious) signs of its use, developing a beautiful patina individual to each user. No two well-loved bags are alike and we love that about them. Kept oiled, these bags can last for, literally, generations.
