This beautiful leather bag was inspired by William 'Rath' Pashley, the founder of Pashley Cycles, who worked as a despatch rider in the First World War. Characterised by its clean, simple portrait design and carefully hand-finished detailing, the Despatch Bag is hand made from natural full-grain bridle leather and treated with conditioning oils for strength and suppleness.
