Basil Racuk Bags

Basil Racuk bags are urbane, sophisticated, completely hand crafted and under the radar. Not only are all the bags handmade by Basil in his northern California studio all the materials are sourced locally in CA as well.

The Jack Bag is the smallest bag we have, for those who prefer to travel light. It’s the perfect size for a laptop and is full of internal pockets to keep everything organized.

The Soft Brief is a great bag it’s simple design is chic yet masculine and is deceptively spacious. We particularly love its unadorned sophistication.

These two bags are made in Grizzly cowhide, a rugged California pull up leather that has subtle grain and paraffin finish. It’s heavy duty, hard wearing and supple. A rugged dark brown leather that is ready to meet the challenges of everyday use and improve with age.

Basil Racuk Soft Brief

Basil Racuk bags are urbane, sophisticated, completely hand crafted and under the radar. Not only are all the bags handmade by Basil in his northern California studio all the materials are sourced locally in CA as well.

The Soft Brief is a great bag the leather is amazing and it’s deceptively spacious. We particularly love its unadorned sophistication. Don’t be afraid to carry this bag around rain or shine it gets even better looking with a little wear on it.

This popular bag now comes in two new colors. A soft and deep navy calfskin is a wonderful compliment to darker wardrobes, while the new dark brown calfskin works well with brighter and earthier tones.

Basil Racuk Bags

Basil Racuk’s bags are sophisticated and urban, a sight to behold and to be held. Handmade one-by-one from fine leathers and vintage linings sourced in Northern California, these bags are made for life.

We carry two styles: the Weekender and the Soft Brief. The Soft Brief is designed for everyday use, as a briefcase or day bag. It’s large enough to carry everything you need, but not so large that it becomes too heavy for regular use.

The Weekender is made for exactly what its title implies: unexpected overnights and weekend getaways. Its larger than the soft brief, but manageably shaped and easy to carry.
