These satchels are hand-crafted in Britain from top quality, natural heavy leather by artisan leather-smiths. This standard design features a long adjustable shoulder strap (4-foot) that gives the satchel bag a lot of versatility. The satchel is very suitable for young kids, teenagers or fully-grown adults who are looking for something different. This particular 11-inch satchel (we have 5 standard sizes of satchel) is cut from Chocolate Brown leather and is then stitched using a colour matched blend of cotton and nylon for extra durability. The straps and fasteners are then finished with silver buckles and finally the satchel is rivetted for completeness. All our satchels go through a number of quality control checks to ensure that the one you receive meets our high quality standard. All our satchels come with a 30-day no-quibble, money-back guarantee that is also accompanied by a 5-year craftsmanship guarantee. Check the reverse of the satchel for our embossed branding that ensures the quality and craftsmanship is second-to-none and that you're receiving an authentic British hand-crafted satchel.
Our 11-inch satchel is the perfect size to act as a ladies handbag. It's the smallest of our satchel designs and is compact and sleek. This makes it very practical and suitable for carrying everyday things such as your phone, purse, reading books, make-up, iPod, Playbook and generally all your essentials.
Our Chocolate Brown is based on a rich 70% cocoa dark chocolate. It's not charcoal black and it's not chestnut brown, it sits nicely in-between. It has a special leather finish that is very slightly oiled, so that it has a lovely tactile feel and textured look - it's similar to a fully oiled or pull-up leather but is still very durable and is a suitable skin to use for a satchel. Due to the slightly oiled finish of the chocolate brown leather you will find it isn't as glossy as some of our other colours and is a good choice for someone who doesn't appreciate some of our gloss and satin finishes. The reverse side of the leather is dyed dark brown to compliment the finish on the outer. The consensus of opinion is that it's similar in colour to dark brown and mocha but it's not exactly the same.

Fashionista just can't help blogging about them and statistically you've probably already read an article featuring them.
