Satchels have really come back into fashion in recent years. We believe that fashion was the only reason why you didn't see a satchel on every school kid for the last couple of decades, as they are such practical bags. The old retro satchels of course were not in the bright neon colours we see today, nor were they made in the patent faux leather and leatherette most are now, this of course is because real leather is not only very expensive, it is also frowned upon socially by many groups and schools. Quenchy London have made a small but very practical range of a few satchels including satchel backpacks and cross body satchels, just like the old school satchels. Most are faux leather but also soft canvas and denim canvas cloth messenger type satchels are now highly fashionable in fancy modern prints.
