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.

These pieces are made entirely by hand which means no two are exactly alike; they are wonderful examples of artesian craftsmanship meant to be worn and enjoyed for years.
