Handmade Leather Writer's Medic Bag


Undyed Leather - Not covered Undyed leather essentially means nude leather, with nothing covered up. This produces a natural looking product that will have some natural marks, scars and other blemishes. In other words, it has not been processed to make the leather appear perfect, like something you would get in a department store. When you get your brand new undyed, vegetable-tanned leather goods, you are seeing its natural color. The hide is effectively naked and so will age and darken with the sun just like your own skin. Aging will develop a rich color and patina. Sun exposure, daily handling, water, and conditioning give natural vegetable tanned leather a rustic look over time. Read more about vegetable-tanned leather.


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. It also makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift for writers. 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.

Medic Bag a much have.

I absolutely love my medic bag. The quality is excellent. I love carrying it with me when I go the neighborhood coffee shop or sitting out on my balcony and just want to journal.

A Pirates Bag!

I have been wanting a Writers Medic Bag for some time now. Knowing that it was Zeynep's Design idea and knowing the Story of Galen Leather made it all the more poignant to me. Now that I have had it for a few weeks I can honestly say this bag is beyond amazing. It stands beautifully on its own, opens easily and has a surprising level of space with the elastic divider. Ample loops for Pens or other tools and a spacious interior zippered pouch allow for storage of almost anything a Writer could want. Myself I picked it up for a Game that I play, hence the Review Title. It is absolutely perfect for this task, it holds everything available for the game with room to spare and makes for an excellent Presentation Piece on the table as well. If you are 'on the fence' about this as a Purchase I urge you to take that last step and get yourself one.

Love this bag!

This is such an amazing bag; I love the size, the quality, and the functionality. It holds my travelers notebook and four others. I have seven pens in it, and it is the perfect companion when I want to sit out and write. The leather looks and feels great, and has that amazing leather smell. Shipping was so fast as well.

My only complaint is that I wish the post that you use to fasten it close was something flatter, so the front would lay flatter when opened. Other than that, incredible!

I am really pleased to used this writer's boxe. I could easily bring my watercolors with me.

“I don’t need to bring it with me right now…but I can’t bear to leave it behind”

The title quote being what I said on a trip to the grocery store the day I got this bag. It was my Christmas present from my family and I couldn’t be happier. The grey color is so neutral but also modern, and I simply can’t wait to see how it ages. It’s as beautiful as I imagined and I can’t wait to work it into my day.

In case you haven’t watched hands-on videos, note that this bag is squire small. The largest cross section is about the same LxW as my 11” iPad and the Apple Pencil doesn’t sit very comfortably in its magnetic home on the edge of the ipad because of that (but there are pen holders galore for that). The small size is a feature, not a bug, though. I almost opted for the XL size, but I think that it would’ve just been too massive for me to feel like I can use it on a daily basis. I just want to be able to get out and get writing and this bag is just perfect for that.

Now don’t mind me I’m gonna go climb in bed with my new writer’s bag…

Stunning leather, beautiful craftsmanship, the smell is devine and the design is incredibly useful.

I absolutely love my Crazy Horse Tan Medic Bag. I smile every time I look at it!! Thanks to Instagram, I saw this beautiful bag online and then had to have it (Merry Christmas to me haha!)
The feel of the leather is amazing, it smells great and it has be beautifully created. The packaging it came in demonstrates the extra care and attention to detail that the Galen Leather Co. have for their products and the little addition of thanks (tea/coffee and post card) were a nice touch.
I understand the creator sadly didn’t get to see her design come to life, but I have no doubt she knows this beautiful piece has been created on her behalf. You have done her proud.
It is hands down the most beautiful bag I own and I love using it.The ability to pop in all of my journaling bits and pieces and take it wherever I like, is wonderful and very handy.

After long time searching, finally the perfect journal bag

I really love it , the design is wonderful and as every Galen leather product, the quality is superb.
I got mine in my most lovable leather crazy horse navy.

The best purchase I've made all year.

I first discovered this bag through Goulet Pens' website a couple months ago, in early July. I only managed to last a few days before I caved in and bought one for myself -- the craftmanship at display here was simply too alluring, I could hardly resist. And for once, my impulsive material desires have rewarded me! This medic bag design is not only a treat to gander at, as I make sure to always leave it on the corner of my desk for ease of admiration, but it's also a wonderfully-executed masterwork of creative utility. This bag can easily contain everything I need to fuel a spate of artistic expression, all conveniently accessible through a small, secure leather latch and a series of magnets that pull free with a satisfying pop. I carry a myriad of fountain pens and pencils in mine, along with some extra stationary, personal keepsakes, a landscape Write Co. landscape notepad, and a Galen Leather Zippered A5 Folio that contains my journal/sketchbook, and even more pens!

Though the included strap may not inspire 100% confidence in its security, as it feels it may potentially pop loose after some years of wear, I am still thoroughly satisfied with this brilliantly-designed bag. I'd be more than happy to make any modifications to make sure that I can use this bag for many, many years to come. It's a work of art!
