I have now accepted orders for all my remaining stocks of raw materials and intend to retire when I have completed and delivered them. So I have removed all the order buttons. I still have the equipment and premises and am happy to do any repair work.

I would like to express my boundless appreciation to all my customers – particularly the ‘returning’ ones – for allowing me to make a living from such a pleasurable activity.

But there is every possibility that later next year I will want to make a few articles for my more persistent customers so have decided to start a ‘reserve list’ for customers who might want me to contact them in this event.

I really enjoy making leather bags and am still able to do that well enough. It’s keeping all the small business plates spinning that I feel too old to do anymore.

If you would like to go on that reserve list then please email me.

Large Bookbag


(15″ x 12″ x 5″ / 385mm x 305mm x 130mm)

The large bookbag can be seen as a ‘portrait’ orientated large satchel but with rucksack straps. Henry makes them from the same fullgrain leather and robust construction as the rest of the satchel range. The main body of the bag is large enough to accommodate most conventional laptops and foolscap/A4 files. There is a zip sleeve on the back of the bag to keep valuables out of reach from sticky fingers in crowded places when the bag is on your back.

The basic bag is an empty shell with a single front buckle closure, rucksack straps, grab handle and back zip sleeve. If, however, you want to customise the design by adding one or other add-on option, the price would change accordingly. You can specify any changes you want in the ‘queries/requests’ box in the order form which Henry will confirm by personal email.
