Basil’s Bags

We’re pleased to announce our recent collaboration with Northern Californian bag maker Basil Racuk. These bags are urban, sophisticated, well-made and simply thoughtful in design. Basil’s philosophy is “Branding is no longer relevant in the way that we’ve come to expect it over the past 10+ years, and should therefore be eliminated whenever possible.” Because of this, there is no visible marking on the exterior of his products. We like that.

Sourcing domestic hides, Racuk prefers waxed cow, supple pebbled deer and buffalo leathers for his unstructured, raw designs. Cut and sealed edges with minimal stitching and subtle hardware fastenings add a finishing touch without distracting from the material. Every item is handmade to order by Basil in his workshop near Berkeley, CA.

The Basil Racuk collection is currently available at Leffot.
