100% HANDMADE IN TURKEY
PRODUCT:Handmade Leather Writer's Medic Bag
Crazy Horse Forest Green
Distressed dark green color showing under-tones of light green, sacramento and emerald. Ages and softens quicker compared to regular leather. Suede feeling finish.
In honour of our founder Zeynep's last design, we've finally brought her dream to life. As a lover of all things vintage, she was inspired by the design of a traditional medic messenger bag and adapted it to incorporate the Galen Leather product range.
The Writer's Medic Bag will light up any writer's imagination. With compartments for notebooks, journals, pen slots and accessories, you can easily take all your writing essentials with you wherever your work takes you. This is the perfect gift for fellow lovers and collectors of our Galen Leather products. Now you can keep all your favourite items together and take them on your next adventure! The gorgeous distressed forest green colour is a long time favourite from our leather collection so it was no wonder we had to include it in the Writer's Medic Bag.

INSPIRATION:Here is the setup by @micahfinds
I received this bag as part of a giveaway with @Skybambi & Galen Leather, after pining over it since it’s release. It absolutely did not disappoint, arriving beautifully packaged with reusable fabric bags, teas, stickers, a leather keychain, a post card & more.
The bag itself is well made, with a reddy brown toned supple leather, gorgeous brass detailing and an adjustable strap. I protected my bag with a leather balsam which deepened the red/brown tone and diffused some of the crazy horse detailing - both ways work beautifully and the bag responded well to the protective balsam coating. Balsam also works for any scratches the leather may get over time (depending on whether you prefer the natural worn look or a neat pristine look).
The bag attaches at the sides with magnets which I feel could be much stronger but does not affect the overall performance. The internals are well designed for pens, papers, scissors etc. The internal pocket perfectly fits an a5 journal, an a5 book or accordion folder, and a pencil case upright.
The leather strap is a great length for men & women as a satchel strap, and fits a small-mid framed woman as a backpack. The internals are beautifully matched and so versatile - I’m using mine for journaling which it’s perfect for, but it could also likely work for makeup, paints & small paintbrushes, small tools, you name it. Just be aware that this bag is coffee shop sized and not laptop sized - perfect to sit on a coffee shop table (I’m sure!) and journal, but wouldn’t fit the iPad Pro I don’t think.
I’m a historical overpacker, having always stuffed my bags with every creative tool I had, so this bag is my ultimate dream. I’m learning to pack this beautiful bag wisely but this also allows it to not get too heavy, and I’m so glad it fits all of my essentials so perfectly.
Overall the Writer’s Medic Bag is a total dream and I’m still pinching myself that I get to journal in the park, at the beach, at home, and someday soon my local coffee shop and beyond with this gorgeous bag. Thank you so much to Galen Leather for this wonderful gift, to Zeynep for blessing us with this beautiful last design for us to remember her by before her passing, and to Tersh @skybambi for hosting the awesome Instagram giveaway.
Outstanding design, functionality & craftsmanship, with perfect balance in open-state, robustness and room to spare. Just bubbling and smiling with joy !! This bag will last a life time.
Great attention to quality packaging, loaded with goodies; fast lead-time, and top notch communication and thoughtfulness.
Can’t say enough good things about this wonderful, generous company: Yunus, and bless Zeynep, treat us like family.
So so happy with this bag. Craftsmanship is excellent, it looks and smells gorgeous and holds all my favourite stationery items easily. Really nice design.
This bag is just beautiful. Well-designed, small but spacious, and I can't wait to start using it full-time.
Very happy with my bag - it’s practical and beautiful. But I agree with a previous reviewer that the studs are too small for the strap and opening and kept falling out. I resolved this by replacing with larger studs - could Galen change this for the future production ? But the bag is fabulous!
I received my Crazy Horse Forest Green Writers Medic Bag that I ordered and it is itself a piece of art! Beautifully packaged and of excellent quality. I look forward to a lifetime of use!!
The quality of the leather, the craftmanship of the bag, the packaging the little surprising details that come within ( I would not like to spoil this for future buyers), all in all for me it was the best purchasing experience ever. I will be returning for more for sure. It’s been a long time since I have felt so excited and illusioned about something. Great job guys, keep at it. It definetly made my day.
I absolutely love it. It is classy yet practical, a true craftsmanship is shown throughout. I can't wait to go out with it and enjoy my time writing something under a tree with fresh breeze on my face. Soon, when we can all go out again.
The color is deep like in deep forest. Plenty of room for ordinary stuff. The side closures are magnetic as opposed to clasps which is a big plus for me. The only thing is the dust bag is little too tight and it takes time to put it back. I might get a bigger dust bag for convenience. I wasn't so sure about the color - in fact, I wanted the natural brown if it was in shock but it turned out deep forest is a unique and beautiful. I just placed an order of journal cover in the same color now that I realized how beautiful the color is.
Awesome, little cross bag that inspires me to write something to ponder about!
craftmenship work I bought within the last years. Apart of the well constructed bag it arrived at my place lovingly decorated and wrapped up by hand which gave this product a very personally note. This is awesome! Simply perfect and it is worth to wait for it and it is worth every single Euro/Cent. Thank you to all of the Galen-Team for this great job !!
