Leather Backpack



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.

Lotuff's Leather Backpack is one part backpack, one part briefcase. Guaranteed for life, this full-grain leather bag is handmade in America and is accented with solid-brass buckles and hardware. The best backpack for business commuting or travel, this piece has a double-gusset construction and back zipper pocket.

    Product Information

    Most backpacks are aesthetically barren - designed solely with function in mind. We challenge that design tunnel vision with a fully leather backpack.

    With an interior that accommodates all the possessions of today's cycling commuter and a discrete zippered back pocket for one's valuables, the backpack borrows the best elements from our handmade briefcases.

    A zipper pocket in the back allows you to store valuables, laptops, and tablets right against your back. The double gusset construction gives extra space for travel, and a middle interior zipper compartment contains pockets for business cards and a cell phone. 

    It is as beautiful as it is inherently usable. 


    The monogram on the Leather Backpack is subtly placed on the interior flap of the bag, visible only when the front flap is raised. The font is Times New Roman and stands about 1/2" in height. You have an option of a deboss (picture set #1) or a gold foil (picture set #2). 

    By request, we can put the monogram on the exterior flap of the bag, in between the two straps so it is outwardly visible when the bag is being carried. Please make note if you'd like this placement in your order notes.

    Great investment

    My hunt for a formal business backup stopped when I was referred by a friend to Lotuff backpack.

    The bag when you see it is very spacious (May be the pictures on the website do not do justice)

    The finish of the stitches, the touch and the smell of the leather, the buckles and the monogram touch makes it’s look premium.

    I am very satisfied with my purchase and looking for more categories for my next Lotuff item (but no longer ordering from outside US)

    Just a fact which is not mentioned very clearly is the customs you have to pay if you get it delivered in Europe (Germany).

    Weight Has Artistic and Business Integrity

    Maiden voyage: This bad boy elevated my whole day. Really? Yes. Looks on BART from the East Bay to San Francisco, check. Looks as I went through the fare gates, check. Looks on my walk from Montgomery station to North Beach, check. Feelin' like I was being asked (subliminally) "Where in the Hell did that backpack come from-Who designed it?", check. Loving the top zip pocket for my wallet and Clipper Card, check. Lotuff has the "It Factor". I don't solicit looks, but its a nice feeling no matter.

    At first, I was afraid of the weight of this bag, then I was petrified. However, by the time I loaded and strapped it on, I was so stoked (yeah, a bit too dude surfer-speak) about the look, feel, and functionality, it was like we were floating on air-this bag had undeniable integrity that out weighed itself. It will definitely make my new Gucci duffel messenger sad. I can feel the hands that formed this masterful carrying apparatus from Lotuff. I am somewhat qualified to make this comment, because I took a leather crafting course from Amblard Leather Atelier, and was a handbag designer for 12 years. The monogramming? Get it, and get gold-it's just better. Trust me.

    This backpack is the second Lotuff for me. I am carefully considering my next victim.

    The concept, artistry, integrity, and business model that is Lotuff is admirable and envious. Thank you to the minds and hands that have and continue to enrich my life-seriously.

    Not just for men!

    When thinking about a backpack, many women may turn the other way- opting for a more feminine piece. However, ever since I set my eyes on this backpack, I knew i was making the right decision! It is a magnificent piece and one that attracts positive reactions from both men and women. it is spacious enough to fit all of the daily essentials (for those commuting to and from work) while always being in style. i travel often for work, and this particular backpack has been ideal for those sometime stressful moments. it is comfortable and the leather is EXQUISITe (soft and strong). if you are considering to purchase this backpack, think no more. it is an investment that you will love time and time again. thank you Lotuff for such a wonderful piece and service!

    Watta Great Backpack

    I never thought I'd wear a backpack after high school. But after setting my eyes on this one, I became a backpack convert. It is by far the most beautiful thing I own.
    I'm amazed by its versatility. I shamelessly wear it with a suit to meetings, easily beating out the more traditional and boring cases being carried by others. On the weekends, i bike around with it on my back, carrying with me anything I need for a day out.
    It has become the best travel companion, too. I've been through airports with it. Wearing it on my back frees up my hands for other things, and i've biked around foreign cities with it on my back.
    My favorite feature is the security pocket that sits up against my back when I wear it. I keep all my valuables in there, so I know they are absolutely safe no matter where I am.
    I can't count how many times I've been complimented on it.
