Ruitertassen, the best leather bags money can buy.



I. BETTER BAGS FOR YOUR BUCK

Your bag is built from the best leather.

II. NO WASTE ON ADVERTISING

We pour every penny into your bag's crafting.

III. WE DO ALL THE WORK OURSELVES

Absolutely 0% outsourcing.

Your Ruitertassen leather bag is handmade by craftsmen whose ancestral techniques are almost 100 years old.
The material used for your bag is selected through years of experience, tested for its durability and their ability to fit our original designs. All our leather is sourced from Europe. We still work today with the same Belgian tannery that our founder, Jacob de Ruiter, began with in 1925.



In order to sell their bags, other brands invest heavily in advertising. These costs affect the retail price of each bag, as the brand not only has to pay for manufacturing (often through an outsourced workshop) but also for advertising (outsourced as well). Your money should go towards authentic leather and genuine craftsmanship, not marketing campaigns. Here is what you pay for when buying a bag from another brand:


  • Magazine ads.
  • Online promotion, including multiple blogs posts.
  • Websites maintenance.
  • Expensive photo shoots with professional models.
  • Social media.
  • Videos with paid actors.



Your Ruitertassen leather bag is designed and handmade in our own artisanal workshop. We do our photography in-house and manage our own social media campaigns. No fancy adverts or expensive marketing campaigns either. Instead, we pour every possible penny into the in-depth handmade quality, care and workmanship that's taken crafting your bag.
