Scholar V vegetable-tanned leather satchel

Made the old-fashioned way using vegetable-tanned leather. We then dye the leather into different colours. This is one of our very first products created over 35 years ago and still going strong. The satchels age into vintage bags, develop a patina and look better and better with use. 

This satchel is fitted with back-straps and is a great alternative to the expensive nylon schoolbags on the market today. We use extra-long, stong rivets and have tried to make the bag tough. Only snag - the bag needs to be fed with dubbin or leather hide food regularly for best results.

Leather: Vegetable-tanned Mid-brown.

I am very pleased with the Scholar V purchased. The quality and craftmanship is outstanding.
However, I sent a special request with my order which was not adhered to and I had to sent the bag back to Freestyle to fit it with a shoulder strap. The bag will be delivered to you either today or tomorrow. Anxiously waiting for my bag to start using it.
