Back to School: 5 Favorite Satchels


Fall is the perfect time to add a beautiful leather satchel to your wardrobe. I prefer satchels over fancy handbags. They’re functional, beautiful, and last forever. They age wonderfully over time with the leather softening and changing color over the years. I’ve found some beautiful handmade and vintage satchels. I’ve also included a linen satchel that was made for the Italian army in WWII. It might be my favorite. Check them all out, below!
