PRODUCT:Handmade Leather Writer's Medic Bag
Crazy Horse Tan/Distressed
Distressed tan-brown color showing under-tones of brown, caramel and walnut. 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 kit bag and adapted it to incorporate the Galen Leather product range.
The Writer's Medic Bag will light up any writer's or creative's imagination. It's the ultimate stylish way to carry around your writing kit to the coffee shop, on the train, plane or wherever your work takes you. With compartments for notebooks, journals, pen slots and accessories, you can easily pack all your writing essentials with you.
Galen Leather fans will fall in love with this writing kit bag as it's the ultimate collector's item for displaying all your favourite products from our range. The gorgeous distressed tan colour is a best seller throughout our collections so without a doubt we had to include it as a colour option for the Writer's Medic Bag.

INSPIRATION:Here is the setup by @micahfinds
This bag was a college graduation gift for my son. I could not be more pleased. Not only is the bag terrific, the stitching and craftsmanship can't be overstated. It is so beautifully made that it seems a shame to actually use it. It arrived a lot quicker than I anticipated and the customer service I received was pretty amazing. I love this company and will be using it in the future. Worth every single cent.
I believe life is too short for ugly stationery supplies. This Writer's Medic bag is just beautiful. It was a gift to me from my mother and I shall be passing it on to my daughter in time. It brings me joy to look at on my art/writing table and it holds enough for me to take supplies with me on the go, and in style. The only, minor, issue I would say is that the magnets do not seem as strong as I could have done with, I am having to restrict myself a little as I tend to overpack - once the lid is down the sides stay in but when it is up they can pop open if I stuffed a little too much. But, I love it.
The Writers medic Bag is such a nice item, but was not complete, a button was missed and i didn't get an answer to my two request. I ordered for over 400€ and I am disappointed.
I ordered the green bag because the tan one was not available, and I'm so glad I did. The green is beautiful! I've gotten several compliments just on the color. I ordered a couple of the brass accessories to go with the bag, and they are a perfect match. If I could change anything on this bag, it would be to make it slightly taller. I use Blackwing pencils more than any other writing instrument, and they're very long. With just an initial sharpen (or unsharpened), they are too tall to fit properly. I have to give them an extra sharpen or two to get them to fit. Anyone who uses Blackwings probably knows this is an issue with most pen/pencil boxes, bags, etc.This isn't a big enough issue to lose a star, because I really do love this bag.
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!
