Basil Racuk continues to impress with this most recent version of the Weekender bag. This made to order piece is striking in black and red, noticeable but unadorned. The Weekender is an excellent bag for short trips away or to the gym it measures 9″ x 23.5″ x 9″.

The latest made to order bag by northern California bag makerBasil Racukis hot; it’s the Weekender in black buffalo. This is a great bag made even greater in this extraordinary leather. Buffalo is strong, supple, and lightweight and has a very intriguing texture. Added all up this is one luxurious weekend bag.
Weekender in Black Buffalo – Made to Order
Vintage 1960’s Velour Lining
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.
