So I want to share with you all about this company that handcrafts some really cute bags. They were brought to my attention through a friend. I saw her rocking this chic yellow backpack from The Leather Satchel Co. once she came back from her trip over to England and I had to get more details about them. So, I pretty much did the basic like anyone else would do and followed them on Instagram hah. They honestly have so many styles it's hard to chose which one I like best... I'll just have to get them all, eventually ;)
The coolest part about this post and my tie into being even more into the company then I was before is that one of my other friend's fiancé actually is the Commercial Director for the U.S.!!! How cool is that?!! I was so grateful they thought of me to help promote the brand over here in the States and immediately said yes to helping out anyway I could. I know what you're probably thinking... they're her friends and she's just saying how awesome they are because of that, but in all honestly that's not the case at all. I actually really am in love with how nice, simplistic, and functional these satchels are!!!
To give you a little tidbit on their origin, The Leather Satchel Co. originated in Liverpool, England back in 1966 and is the original leather satchel. All of their handbags are made from 100% cowhide leather which you can get pretty much any color in the leather that you'd like. There are so many different options from bright, neutral, pastel, patent, distressed, or even having a design printed onto the leather! Like I said, soooooo many that it makes it really hard to choose which is best lol. Plus the amount of styles with all of them being so darling! You'll get to see a few of the styles below throughout my pics, but I absolutely fell in love with the saddle bag backpack and the little cross body sporran.
Ok, so enough talking/reading, lets get into the seeing and perusing of these gorgeous bags! I'll show them in sections by they're style so it'll make it easier for ordering yours once done browsing ;)

I just LOVE this little backpack! First off, look at this amazing coral color. It's so pretty for the Spring and Summer months. The saddle style is also something I really am enjoying because it's not something you see done in a backpack that often. It actually is one of their NEW styles for 2017! And look at this little buckle closure, I just think the simplistic details are so cute.
