TECH TALK: Buckle & Seam’s Messenger Bag Sierra

Buckle & Seams Messenger Bag Sierra
Buckle & Seams Messenger Bag Sierra

Well, not exactly tech you might say, but as it's something to carry your laptop in, it just about scrapes into the category.

Not that 'scrape' is an ideal word to use in conjunction with the Sierra, as this product from this relatively new company's Midnight Blue Collection just oozes quality and class and, constructed from natural leather, is likely to last a lifetime with the correct care.

The vegetable-tanned cow leather is rich, thick and soft, and the workmanship is of the highest standard with incredible attention to detail, giving an overall feel of quality akin to much pricier designer bags.

In this rich dark blue colour one can only imagine the patina it will achieve over the years as it ferries your tech from home to office and further.

Timeless and practical, the Sierra packs a lot into a sleek, elegant profile. The padded interior pocket is large enough for a laptop up to 15.7" while the spacious main pocket has room for all your necessities, including a folder. The top handle makes it easy to grab your bag and go. The Sierra is the perfect business companion with its detachable shoulder strap and trolley solution - handy for that business trip abroad.

There's also a choice of three lining patterns, and for an extra fee - 25 euros to be precise - you can have you initials etched into the leather for that extra touch of personalisation and class.

There's an extra incentive as the company donates 3% of its revenue per bag sold to make it grow and empower young children in the community through education. It has developed a partnership with Anum School, a school that supports girl's education in an under-privileged neighbourhood of Karachi, Pakistan.
