Sukhothai 'Day Tripper' Unisex Leather Messenger Bag

This bag has been constructed with devoted attention to detail. I have put in literally hours of work on this bag, a truly genuine labour of love. I want the new owner to really enjoy this bag for many years to come, so I have worked the best magic I know in its construction.

Designed with durability in mind, the 'Day Tripper' is an excellent companion for travel abroad to the orient so mysterious... or simply to the library cafe :)

Ideal protection for your iPad, notebook, camera or such, with plenty of storage including strong and convenient pockets that might house flashlights/torches, rain ponchos and so on.

Main compartment: 30cm x 22cm x 6cm (but it is quite flexible leather, so bulkier items can fit - including, albeit at a squeeze, a DSLR!)

This is truly beautiful leather, a lush deep brown honey colour. Interestingly, when you fold/stress the leather, it's colour changes to a lighter honey colour, but returns to normal colour when relaxed. Also, when scratched, it also flares a brilliant honey colour, but rub it with your thumb and it self heals because of oil within the leather, thus returning to the dark brown colour.

Each front pocket: 12 x 9 x 3 cm

Each side pocket: 10 x 6 x 3 cm

Includes a sturdy adjustable strap (strong enough to tow a stranded car I would bet!) Part of the shoulder strap is a removable shoulder pad.

All stitching by hand, all fittings are strong metal, joins are re-enforced by metal rivots.

Strong 'all Cow leather' (no whales were harmed in the making of this bag :P ). Front main flap and front straps lined with plush, smooth deep brown suede. Hand stitched with heavy duty waxed cotton by yours truly. For extra strength, it is all bonded together with an industrial strength two part adhesive.

* Special note - the first image, me with bag at ancient Sukhothai city, Thailand, is an earlier model bag, but the other images are the current bag on sale - the main difference is that all the fittings of the bag currently for sale are a beautiful bronze colour (where as the older model has silver fittings), but I liked the travel pic so that's why it's there. Thank you.
