Desert Postie - Hand made leather satchels and holdalls
(from website) 'The original school bag style measures 13 inches wide. An old classic, that is back in style, which complements any outfit. Small pocket on front ideal for keys and train passes. Inside are three compartments and two pockets for valuables. Large enough for A4 files. Finished with an adjustable, leather shoulder strap.' Got my first about 3 1/2 years ago and love it so much I've just got my second one. Got complimented a lot on it at university and so many people wondered where I got it from that I thought I'd better share it. It ages really well, getting softer and more characterful as time passes. A warning for when you first buy this: It will smell strongly of new leather for a few weeks, so hang it up in the shed until that's passed. UPDATE: Added this to my AW10 list because leather satchels have become a key accessory for this season.
