The classic musette gets an Italian leather makeover
Rapha has reproduced the classic musette design in an exceptional Italian leather. Featuring a zipped closure to the top with an o-ring puller and an internal cardholder, the Leather Musette is the ideal companion for the urban cyclist and will comfortably carry a tablet or small laptop.
The musette has been a part of cycling since the advent of racing itself and over the years almost nothing has changed with the design. Musettes are simple cotton bags that are handed to racing cyclists at feed zones and contain food and drink. They have also become sought-after souvenirs among cycling fans, and are collected as avidly as cycling caps.
Limited production, created to last a lifetime and look better with every passing year, each item in the Made in Italy collection has been handcrafted in the same Italian factory that makes bags for Chanel. The softest calfskin leather has been used and to ensure it stands up to years of hard wear, each piece has been treated with a water repellant coating.
The design honours the best of Italian craft and tradition; themes which run through all pieces in the Made in Italy collection.
