(B14) Black Leather Messenger Bag Handmade USPS Mail Bag Inspired With Lever Latch.
This is a beautiful soft black leather messenger bag, inspired by the early USPS traditional mail bags. It has 24 hand hammered traditional brass saddlers rivets and the main seams are double sewn. It has an over the shoulder bridle leather strap with a shoulder pad to ensure it is comfortable when carrying heavy loads, it also has a quick grab handle. This bag has a solid brass one handed lever latch. Inside there is a divider, as well as a zipped pocket for valuables, and phone and pen slots. There is also a key holder on a short lead for keys etc or to secure the bag around a table or chair in a restaurant etc.
Here is a film of the same bag but in a brown leather being made: https://youtu.be/6hHZsRefQQI This bag is unlined, and of traditional design. The saddlers rivets are incredibly strong...and are not to be confused with the cheaper brass rivets that are used on some bags. The handles have hand rounded and polished edges for comfort....a small detail that you will not find very often, but one that makes a big difference to comfort and appearance.
Measurements: This bag is approximately 14 inches wide x 10 inches high x 4 inches deep. The strap is 50 inches long with 4 inches of adjustment either way (i.e. 46 to 54 inches.) It forms a loop above the bag approximately 24 inches high on the middle setting. Please do check the sizing against an existing bag to make sure this is right for you.
I have made this bag myself in my workshop in Sevenoaks, Kent. This is the actual bag you will receive, and it is ready to ship.
I will send this bag out securely packaged, and use a tracked and insured delivery service.
