Where can I purchase a Harry Potter satchel?

Officiel Harry Potter small satchel made by Ruitertassen.

QUESTION

I discovered the Harry Potter satchels made by Ruitertassen.
They look fantastic, is it still possible to buy them?

ANSWER

The Harry Potter satchel are now only available on second-hand markets.
We made the “sorcerer’s bags” mainly between 2001 and 2005 to support the release of the original trilogy.
They were produced under official license for a limited time with the Warner studios.
The Harry Potter satchels made by Ruitertassen are highly collectible items.

There are three official sorcerer’s bags:

  • The 14″ satchel with a central buckle – based on this briefcase.
  • The 15″ satchel with two buckles – based on this briefcase.
  • The doctor’s bag. This model is rare. According to our archives, we only produced 500 pieces worldwide.
    Mainly used to decorate stores, there are no equivalent currently in our catalogue.

    • Lucky you! The price is tied to demand on second hand’s market.
      To give you an idea, the new version of this bag costs today $259. The Harry Potter collector version can potentially fetch a higher price because of its rarity.
      I have seen people selling them anywhere between £150 to £500, but to be honest, I doubt they actually sold for £500. Given enough time, it will get there.
      Other models are even harder to come by and are already close to the £500 mark.

  • I recently aquired a backpack made by your company. Its a harry potter edition. I have already got the other 3 bags you made. But i can not for the life of me find any more information on the bag except it was made for warner bros by your company between 2001 and 2005. Do you have any further info. Even how rare is it

    • Dear Martin, thanks for your question.
      We have made a semi-supple vintage brown leather backpack indeed.
      This was made prior to the briefcases and doctor bag, around the year 2000.
      It is hard to recover the number that has been made, but it was not many…
