For the minimalist seeking durability, our svelte handmade briefcase messenger bag is a timeless choice. With clean and simple lines, this bag exudes a sense of sophistication. The full flap features durable hidden tuck-locks, ensuring your belongings stay secure.

Starting with the highest-quality leather sourced from the US, we craft this bag from drum-dyed leather. The leather is then meticulously treated with oils and waxes, resulting in a material that boasts a deep, rich color and exceptional durability. Over time, it develops a handsome patina that adds to its charm.

Structured and rigid, the thick leather maintains its shape even with years of use. The wrapped sturdy handle provides comfort and versatility, allowing you to carry it as a briefcase or wear it messenger style with the shoulder strap. Inside, you'll find two compartments and organization pockets to keep your essentials in order.

Beautifully made bag - It is perfect!

Outstanding Bag.

This bag screams high quality!

This bag screams high quality. Compliments are given everywhere I go! Seller kept in contact and I had a very good experience. They forgot to put my initials on the bag, but that’s minor and didn’t cost extra, so I can’t be too mad.


Rarely, do you find a bag that matches the quality that you pay for. In this case, Basader, the designer of this handcrafted masterpiece, surpassed that expectation… literally. I spent a very long time, two years of research before I settled on this Basader bag. The craftsmanship on this bag is by far some of the best work I’ve seen in a lifetime. I know and love leather…the finish and treatment on this bag is shocking. Thanks, with great appreciation to Basader, for making such a beautiful bag! Breathtaking.
