Leather Bicycle Seat Bag, Oregon

It is easy for Geoffrey Franklin, designer and owner of Walnut Studio, to create authentic and carefully crafted leather bicycle accessories. It has to be! Because every few months he whips out a completely new product that looks and functions at high quality levels. Most recently, a stylish hand-tooled leather box-shaped saddle bag. The bag is hand-finished, hand-stitched thick, and is constructed from stiff leather which attaches to your bike with a buckle closure and an additional leather twine to tie around the seat post. Franklin explained that the bag "Stays shut with a 'common sense' hardware closure, and contents are held secure with envelope flaps that fold into the bag." The leather in the bag is made with USA-made unfinished tanned leather from a local company that I finished with a combination process including weatherproofing and dye. Available in “honey”/cognac, brown, black, or unfinished natural. ($72)
