Another extremely handsome and functional multipurpose bag from Vasco’s “Old Oil Series”. The Roll Top Rucksack is again, a very useful everyday and weekend bag with one spacious internal and two external pockets. It comes in a beautiful soft but heavy duty hand dyed leather with superb construction and very solid hardware. It has a dual opening via the buckled roll top and heavy duty leather tabbed zip opening at the back. It is a lifetime rough and ready carrier that you feel the moment you pick it up.
The leather is vegetable tanned in Himeji, Japan and “hill dyed” by hand which is a very old traditional hand dyeing method which gives the leather a very rich lustre and slight vintage texture and look. It’s beautiful.
The brass fittings are custom made for Vasco, the interior is lined with a heavy duty canvas and the thick leather straps are comfortable and will mould to your torso with use. Nice details and handsomely fit for purpose.
These bags are investment pieces as they will age to perfection with you and whoever you pass it onto.
All hand dyed, cut and sewn by a very small team of true artisans in Japan.
