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.
