Go back in time with a vintage satchel, once a faithful companion to many students in Britain. The hardy leather bag first appeared in Roman times and has remained mostly unchanged throughout its history.


Traditional styles are simple, with a front flap covering a large compartment. Some variations add one or two smaller pockets for better organisation. While most have one shoulder strap, school bag types often had two. Unassuming and practical, vintage satchels are durable and reliable.
