The Professor Palmer Postal Bag
Extra oomph, extra soft, extra-extra in every way! Inspired by vintage U.S. Postal Service delivery bags from the early 1900's, this bag is made of super soft lambskin, lined in leather, and trimmed in cognac brown leather. This bag's namesake is Professor George Herbert Palmer who in 1924 translated into English from an ancient Greek work of Herodotus describing the Persian system of mounted postal carriers c. 500 B.C.E.: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Its leather handles are comfortable to the grip and they are bolted to the bag for easy carrying. Its long shoulder strap makes for carrying over the shoulder. It has 2 spacious inner pockets. One secures with a solid brass RiRi butter-smooth zipper; whereas the second is a drop-in pocket pouch. The hardware is solid brass.
Every bag begins with an inspiration, a sketch and a hand-made pattern. Then begins the process of tracing and cutting the leather; leading to constructing and stitching the bag. We source our leathers to ensure a premium grade material.
