An Evergreen Classic
You probably associate the leather satchel with the infamous action man Indiana Jones but it was during Roman times the leather satchels really established itself largely used for storing personal belongings and food rations during transit. They called it Loculus, meaning ‘little place’. Today the principle of the leather satchel has not changed used very much, in the same way, carrying everything between personal and work essentials. Keeping them secure during transit and frequently used as bookbag – a role that has not changed since the messenger bags inception between 300-900AD when missionaries and monks would use them to carry religious texts safely. It was in the 17th century, the leather satchel took on a new role as a fashion accessory and immediately became the go-to bag for school and university. Shakespeare even refers to a ‘whining school-boy, with his satchel’ in his play ‘As You Like It’ but it wasn’t until the 50's and 60’s that the leather satchel became a staple for British students. The vintage satchel continues to inspire our collection today as we aim to encapsulate quintessential British style with the traditional leather-making processes deep-rooted in Indian culture.
