Handcrafted Leather Satchels

Leather satchels lovingly handcrafted, with a hint of British eccentricity thrown in for good measure.

The leather satchel is one of those items that just harks back to something quintessentially British. It epitomises the British student since time immemorial. Even Shakespeare mentions a satchel in his infamous monologue in ‘All The World’s A Stage’: “...And then the whining school boy with his satchel…”

Similarly at Sir Gordon Bennett we can’t help but associate The Original Satchel Store with this sense of true British style and class. The humble satchel has come a long way since Shakespeare’s day, and has indeed made all the world its stage. Gone are the days when you only see satchels in the grounds of universities and colleges around the country - now you’re more likely to see this iconic bag making a statement on the catwalk or on the pages of style magazines.

The Original Satchel Store has been one of the pioneering designers that brought this unique accessory to the forefront of the British style industry. With the artisan craftsmanship that goes into making each of their leather satchels, these are more than just bags, they’re investments. Products that shout to the world exactly what you’re about: class, quality and style.
