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. An adjustable strap can be fastened under-arm to prevent the bag from swinging whilst the wearer is cycling, and the shoulder strap features a sliding leather pad to help disperse weight comfortably. A functional, beautiful piece, the Despatch Bag is crafted so that it will improve and mellow with age and use, standing as a fitting tribute to the founder of Pashley.
Please note that due to a significant rise in demand we have had to increase our build lead time for all our cycles, and we are not able to guarantee cycles ordered now will be delivered before Christmas. Please see our delivery page for further information.
