Raw "Rasa" Leather Knapsack


We can emboss your initials on your new Lotuff piece to make it truly your own. Please write in the order of your first initial, middle, and last initials. If you’d like, you can forego a middle initial. Each letter is capitalized and in the same size and font. A monogram adds $50 to your order. Provided the item you order is in stock, there is no added lead time if you opt for the monogram.

This limited edition version is from our Rasa collection. With a nod to the Latin phrase tabula rasa, each rasa bag is handmade of leather that comes to us as a total blank slate--raw, uncorrected, and begging to be broken in to take on a life of its own. Once the rasa is in our hands, it goes through a special hand-burnishing process, each one emerging with a slightly different look than the other. This labor of love takes time, skill, and creativity, but it ends in a truly special, one-of-a-kind bag.

Product Information

The Leather Knapsack brings together elements of a functional, rugged knapsack with those of a refined, classically Lotuff piece. Travel and work were top of mind when designing this bag, resulting in a spacious, functional interior with a zippered drop pocket and slots for your cards and phone. 

On the bag's back exterior, you'll find both a zipper pocket for safeguarding valuable possessions and a small card slot for safe storage and easy access for a subway card or credit card. 

A solid brass hook on the flap attaches to the body of the bag, in between two easily accessible pockets, and an adjustable buckle cinch at the top of the bag 

An unlined interior keeps the bag light and easy to carry, and the shoulder straps are clean, continuous loops, meaning there are no pesky strap ends that poke out.
