This stylish leather backpack is a reimagined version of a popular Japanese school bag design usually intended for children.

The 'Otona Randsel' bag line is based on the 'Randoseru' style that traditionally is purchased for Japanese children on their first day of grade school. Leather workshop Tsuchiya Kaban has taken this slim Japanese school bag design, and given it a grown-up update featuring high-quality materials and craftsmanship. Available in either black or tan, each bag is made using a Italian 'Baketta' leather technique combined with contoured lines, adjustable shoulder straps and several functional pockets.

Combing nostalgia with style, these unique bags are capable of functioning in both formal and casual settings. Each bag is also made from a lightweight and supple leather that will acquire its own natural markings and details over time, making each backpack an entirely unique piece.
