The University of Tartu has partnered with Ruitertassen to produce quality leather goods with the university logo. Ruitertassen is a 100-year-old Belgian family company, that uses naturally vegetable-tanned and oil-tanned leathers procured from the finest Belgian and Italian tanneries.
Handcrafted using techniques pioneered by Ruitertassen founder Jacob de Ruiter, this briefcase is cut from full-grain oil-tan leather.
Weeks spent interacting with natural barks in wooden drums is how it matures to an exceptionally smooth and durable hide.
This leather will slowly develops a warm patina over time depending on its use and sun exposure.
The back and front flap are masterfully made of a single piece of hide to minimize weak points.
We use heavy gauge nylon thread for long-term durability and heavy-duty push locks hidden behind the pair of adjustable buckles.
It features an unlined capacious single compartment and a handy front pocket to organize your essentials.
Store confidential documents in the divider zippered pocket.
Attach the leather shoulder strap to lighten the load on your daily commute.
The Student briefcase embodies the rich character of Ruitertassen’s heritage.
