Daniel Ralsky is a traveler. He's visited 25 countries so far and revels in the ability to explore various cultures and landscapes. And as any traveler would tell you, the right bag is invaluable on journeys far and wide. Seeing a need in the market, Daniel recently created a handsome bag line named Satchel Page that mixes function and a worn-in, rugged style, reminiscent of the 1940's.
Daniel, "I set out to create something different; a line of durable, functional and stylish bags that expressed my passion for travel and the freedom that comes with it." What is especially nice to learn is that all the materials are sourced here in the USA, with all the leather coming from Texas.
I particularly love this bag, inspired by Daniel's grandfather's map case from WWll. It looks and feels as if it was passed down from generations passed, but this modern day version has an interior compartment for an iPad and pocket for your phone.
Daniel resides in Austin, Texas and offers five manly bags in his leather collection. All are handmade with vegetable tanned leather, hand stitched seams and expert detailing. These are bags to be worn, used, passed on and used again. The patina will become more layered and nuanced with time, much like a traveler, wandering the globe, seeking memories to last a lifetime.
