(Sponsored): East Meets West.


On Saturday May 1st from noon to 5pm, Basil Racuk brings his Spring/Summer 2010 styles from his eponymous leather bag and small leather good collection to Leffot in New York.

In this world of commodified everything, Racuk offers the opportunity for true luxury: a chance to work with the craftsman himself, creating not only a custom bag, but one that comes with a story—and the experience of being part of something from beginning to end. Basil is not just a craftsman, he’s an artist with a clear vision of design. Here’s what The New York Times had to say: “His designs are distinguished by their trend-proof but not boring classicism.” 

If you are in New York this weekend, head over to Leffot and meet Basil in person, a Bay Area local who is making us all proud. 

And if you can’t make it to New York this Saturday, you can view his work online at basilracuk.com
