For the minimalist seeking durability, our svelte handmade briefcase/messenger bag is a timeless choice. The full flap features durable hidden tuck-locks, ensuring your belongings stay secure.

We begin crafting this bag with the highest-quality full grain vegetable tanned leather sourced from the US. The leather undergoes a meticulous process of treatment with oils and waxes to achieve an English bridle finish. This results in a material that not only has a deep, rich color but also offers exceptional durability. As time goes by, the leather develops a charming patina that enhances its appeal.

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.

Beautifully made bag, It is perfect!

Outstanding Bag

Outstanding bag, have had it for over a month and completely satisfied with the look, feel and durability. Receive a comment about the bag almost daily. Really nice build and simple but well thought out design. Buy this 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!

Super organized!

Super organized, and I can’t wait to carry this around for the next 10+ years. 15” - MacBook Pro fits like a glove.
