With the end of the summer fast approaching and the drizzle of autumn unfortunately upon us (about a month earlier than we want it), there is no denying that back to school season is here! Everywhere you look there are adverts featuring kids and parents getting ready for another year. This week one of our classic leather satchels was featured in The Independent newspaper one of their “15 best school bags”
. With all the stress of shopping for shoes and stationary and textbooks, a new school bag may be at the back of your mind. So to alleviate any hassle when searching for your child’s new bag, I have compiled a list of five of our best leather bags for the new school year and do remember that all our bags can be customised with names or initials so the bags will easily find their way back to your loved (forgetful) ones!
Our original leather satchel is one of my personal favourites due to its classic style and vintage charm, and it was recently picked by The Independent as one of their top 15 back to school bags
so it clearly isn’t just us! It is long lasting, hard wearing and spacious, with more than enough space for an A4 folder, textbooks and a 13” or 15” laptop, and the thick leather will last for many years of lugging homework to and fro!
Next on the list is this modern take on the vintage leather satchel. The black leather used updates the classic style so that any child would be pleased to show it off, and not only does it look great, but it can easily fit all the coursework that needs to be dragged back and forth to and from school, and an 11” or 13” laptop can fit inside easily. So for a modern and practical version of a vintage staple, this is definitely a great choice.
If your child cycles to work, or perhaps just prefers having a bag on their back, this is the perfect school bag for them. The gorgeous suntanned leather looks amazing, yet there are no compromises on practicality as it can be used as a backpack, satchel, or even as a briefcase! It can easily fit an A4 file alongside books and papers, and a 13” or 15” laptop can also fit inside, so for all the practicality of a large backpack, with the classic style of the leather satchel, this bag will go down great.
Similar to the above bag, but made with beautiful black leather and with a top handle for easy use, our large black leather satchel is really one of our best bags for the new school year. With numerous pockets and space for anything that might need to be carried in, and soft black leather that only gets better with time, this is a fantastic bag for anyone in the new term, whether starting in year 7 or heading off to university!
So, to all you mums and dads, lets hope your kids have a great year, before we know it we will be shopping for Christmas gifts next!
