basil rucak oil tanned leather duffel bag     There is something to be said for understated elegance. I have never been a big fan of leather bags with brand logos splashed all over them. Not that I'm suggesting that anyone that does like them shouldn't, it's just that for me personally, I prefer a more understated, classically elegant look in leather goods.

     I ran across this bag when doing some researching on oil tanned leather goods, (hint, we are gearing to produce some colorful bridle tanned men's leather accessories in 2013) and immediately fell in love with it. It is a handmade vegetable tanned leather bag available in either buffalo or cow leather and completely made by hand by a native Californian, Basil Racuk.

     The clean lines and understated elegance in this bag speaks volumes about the passion Basil has for his craft. As in any quality leather goods, it's the details that matter. Looking at the photos of this bag you can see that from the small leather tassles, the hand stitching work, the YKK zippers and the stylish leather reinforcements at typical bag wear points Basil is very concerned with the details of the bag, making sure it is not only elegant but also equally functional and durable.

     This bag is called the Voyager is his version of a typical duffel with adjustable straps so you can lengthen the strap and wear this as a cross body bag or shorten them and use it as a hand held duffel. Basil makes these bags in his Concord California studio and sources his leather from USA tanneries. This sturdy, yet elegant duffel is available directly from Basil Racuk's website and is available in black and brown oil tanned cowhide or buffalo leather.

     I've got this bag on my holiday wish list and if you love understated yet elegant and quality made leather goods as much as I do, you should too.
