We always look for the best quality when it comes to seeking new carries here at Coolector HQ and, every once in a while, you come across a brand that is clearly a cut above in this regard. That’s exactly the situation we find ourselves in RUITERTASSEN who makes excellent looking career bags which boast abundant quality both in terms of the design of the accessories and the calibre of the materials used in their creation.

RUITERTASSEN have been crafting first class backpacks and accessories for nearly a century now, having been founded in 1925, and the quality of their wares is just as good today as they’ve always been. They strive to make bags and accessories that really do stand the test of time whilst looking the part as well and, as you can see, they’re mighty successful in this objective. Billed as Belgium’s first fine leather brand. Every heritage-inspired piece is crafted for professionals from all walks of life. The bags are handcrafted using techniques pioneered by the brand’s founder Jacob de Ruiter and the Ruitertassen’s career bags are cut from robust artisanal leather.

Finest Quality Carries

If you’re looking for a bag that you’ll use day in, day out that positively exudes quality and luxury craftsmanship, you’ll certainly find something on the digital shelves and many collections from the guys at RUITERTASSEN. The bags from this exemplary brand are divided into different collections, with each collection being characterised by the use of different leathers. One of their stand out collections is definitely that of their Heritage line which is made using full-grain, vegetable tanned leather which will develop a gorgeous patina over time to create a bag that is truly unique to you.

Another fantastic collection from RUITERTASSEN is their Leisure range of carries which is made using a rugged nubuck leather that is extremely striking and hard wearing and ensures the unparalleled aesthetic appeal of the carries within this range. The Vanguard collection from RUITERTASSEN is equally as impressive and is made using the same leather as the Heritage range and allows professionals to get the Ruitertassen leather and feel, without the classic “old” look.

Last but not least, there is the RUITERTASSEN Ultimate collection of carries which, as the name suggests, is a little bit special. This stunning line up of bags is made using two very luxurious leathers working in tandem with one another. The leathers in question are vegetable-tanned cow leather lined with calf vegetable-tanned leather and it is hard to believe that you can get your hands on carries from this collection for under $1000 when you consider the impeccable quality of the materials and the craftsmanship involved.

Proud History

RUITERTASSEN are rightly proud of their Belgian heritage and it infuses every step of their design and manufacturing processes. They are, without question, one of Belgium’s premier purveyors of leather bags and accessories and if you’re after a bag that you’ll want to use for your daily commute or adventures out into the wild, there are so many fantastic pieces to choose from within RUITERTASSEN’s diverse collections.

A truly international brand, RUITERTASSEN have garnered fans from all over the world based upon the quality of the backpacks, duffels and satchels that they produce. There is a clear attention to detail in the designs and the fact that they ensure they work with nothing but the best materials helps ensure that their creations stand head and shoulders above the competition from a style and performance perspective. A new brand to us here at The Coolector but one with almost a century of bag-making experience.
