yuruku : envelope backpack


or make 4 interest-free payments of $172.00 AUD fortnightly with More info


Made entirely by hand in Japan by Yuruku Takanashi, YURUKU leather bags speak of the rare quality an eagle eye will spot at 30 paces. Not a stitch is out of place, not a single detail of line, function or finish has gone unconsidered.  Quietly displaying the finest grade leather and smooth timbers, clever attachments, and the most rigorous construction techniques we've seen, these bags are minimalist in conception, alive with warmth and imagination.

This beautifully crafted leather bag is simplicity itself at a glance, but conceals a carefully resolved design feature. Adjustable length straps thread through the back of the pack and fix inside its front, so the action of putting it on effectively draws the pleated bag shut. It opens with an elegant wooden bar closure (which fits satisfyingly through its slot like a button through a hole), and includes one internal pocket. The backpack comes with a dust bag.
