Believe it or not, I have been on the look out for an ethical satchel for some time. I really love the simple classic shape of these bags as well as their practical across the body style (great for being out and about with children).
The other day, I got an email about Scaramanga who amongst other things (wooden furniture), make beautiful satchels whilst ticking all of the boxes in terms of ethics, you can read their very comprehensive policy here.
Whilst these bags are not actually vintage the leather has been tanned using traditional methods and finished with natural substances such as mustard seed oil. This gives the leather its characteristic look and natural variation in colour. Each of the bags is handmade using artisan methods. The range also includes messenger and travel bags for men and women.
I really love this brand. These vintage styles of bag are a real investment as they will go with so many different outfits and even though satchels are really on trend at the moment, they won’t ever go out of fashion. I will definitely be pointing Mr Style Eyes their way if he happens to be needing any birthday pressy ideas!
What do you think? do you prefer the satchels or flight bags.
With warmest wishes
