Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential. - John Maxwell
Fall is here and the change of season means more than just a return to sweaters and jackets. If you’re not one yourself, you most likely know a student heading back to classes. To help them succeed in their studies, why not invest in tools that will last long after their days at university?
At Rustic Town, we strive to create bags that are more than just a catch-all for carrying your day and accessories that outlast any trend. A Rustic Town piece is a collectible, an investment, a statement about who you are and what you believe in. We believe in reviving traditional leather artistry in India to develop accessories that are hand-stitched to perfection, designed for style and function, and produced from sustainably-sourced leather.
No matter their stage of education, every student needs the right tools to succeed. Why not start with the basics? A great leather laptop bag, a pencil case, and a leather journal.
Our leather messenger bags come in a variety of leathers and sizes (13 to 15 inches for the cross body wearables, and 11 inches for the shoulder strap wearable) to fit laptops, tablets, or notebooks. If you’re looking for the ease and style of messenger bag but need something slightly larger, check our vintage inspired leather satchels that range in size from 15 to 18 inches.
Slim and easy to pack, our leather pencil cases are designed to hold pens, pencils, scissors, scales, and other tools for school or the office. More than just an organizer for stationary, they can also double as a mini leather toiletry bags for travelling.
Finally, the pièce de résistance for any student - the leather journals. Our hand-crafted, 6 by 8 inch journals and notebooks are guaranteed to satisfy. From sleek to highly stylized, all of our journals can be reused by simply changing out the paper pack insert. Our unlined, acid free paper gives you versatility for writing or sketching or whatever else you might need from your journal.
Purchasing a Rustic Town collectible is more than buying an accessory. We believe in supporting communities in other countries. At Rustic Town, a portion of our proceeds helps support ASAH, African Soul, American Heart. ASAH’s mission is to protect, educate, and empower young Sudanese orphan girls throughout primary and secondary school with the ultimate goal of creating strong leaders who can give back to their communities and help establish a lasting peace in their troubled nation.
When you’re considering where to buy your school supplies this year, know that choosing a Rustic Town collectible is more than just another tool. It’s an investment in our global community.
