Care & Guarantee

The root ROWDY leather rucksack is dark and earthy brown, inspired by the humus-rich roots in South African rainforests.

It features two comfortable (and adjustable) straps, a drawstring closure, black cotton lining throughout, a handhold strap, and a buckled front pocket for your essentials – everything you need for a busy lifestyle. You won’t want to leave home without it!

This rucksack is handmade with Nubuck leather which is velvety soft to the touch and gets better the more you wear it. Every root leather rucksack is unique in texture, grain and patina and utterly unique to its bearer.

The ROWDY rucksack is available in two sizes.

PS (Something extra!): The rucksack also features a handy hidden YKK zipper pocket - ideal for passports, tickets and cash.



Our leather rucksack is available in two sizes, small and large. The small is a comfortable, everyday bag that can accommodate a 13" laptop – ideal for your daily commute. The large can fit a 15” laptop and has plenty of room for trips away.

Small – L 210mm x H 385mm x D 125mm
Large – L 260mm x H 445mm x D 140mm 

Our leather rucksacks are handmade. There may be a slight variance in dimensions.

Care & Guarantee

Leather is loved for its durability, its origins in nature and its iconic texture, and as with all best things in life, it requires care.

While we only use natural leather that ages beautifully over time, here are a few tips for the journey:

Water Damage

Allow the leather to dry naturally and slowly. Avoid direct heat!


Use a damp cloth and wipe lightly. If the stain persists, rub gently with an old toothbrush to disperse.

Oily marks are almost impossible to completely remove, so handle your bag with clean hands.


To extend the life of your leather, treat it with a leather conditioner and avoid extreme temperatures.

Kindly note our warranty does not apply to the natural wear and tear of your product, canvas bags or the inner lining of our items.

Any superficial stains are the responsibility of the customer.
