Satchels (646)

What is a satchel?

A satchel is a structured women’s handbag, often crafted from leather with hardware that secures the straps and closure. Satchels may be worn across the body, like a crossbody bag, carried over the shoulder, or by hand.

How is it different from other handbags?

Satchels generally differ from handbag styles such as the hobo bag or shoulder bag, in that they have quite a bit more structure, sometimes enough to stand upright on their own. There is no slouch to a traditional satchel bag. Its rigidity may come from its rectangular or triangular construction with a flat bottom, or from its material, which is usually a stiff leather. Some satchels resemble mini briefcases, while others have design elements that give them a more feminine handbag look. Satchels range in size from small to oversized, and have one or more straps for different carrying options.

Where did the satchel style come from?

Satchels were originally designed for men. A men’s satchel is essentially a briefcase/messenger bag hybrid. It has the same functionality as a briefcase, with the comfort and convenience of a messenger bag. Women eventually adopted the style for toting books, which is why some think of the satchel as a schoolgirl’s bag.

When should I carry a satchel?

When you mean business! This style of purse doesn’t mess around. It’s not slouchy, floppy or carefree, and so its carrier loses any flighty pretense when she carries a satchel. A structured leather satchel is great for the office, especially in a size that accommodates laptops and files. Smaller satchels are a great way to dress up a jeans and blazer outfit. And a classic black satchel is a nice, conservative accessory to pair with a dress, for say, tea with the queen (who, btw, loves a classic satchel).
