The Satchel



 

1. How was your brand born? Tell us about your background and how you started your job.
The Satchel was born during the lockdown when, to pass the time and to express our creativity, my sisters and I pulled out of the attic a sewing machine bought years ago and rarely used, to make small colorful bags. Initially the intention was to create them for us, to have unique and special pieces to embellish every outfit, but after a short time they began to arouse the interest of friends and acquaintances. The handbags have a simple design, reminiscent of the shape of a "bag" (hence the name The Satchel) but embellished with brightly colored fabrics, beads of various shapes and rhinestones, which create a perfect day and evening accessory. They are made entirely by me, in my bedroom, when I take a break from studying. I procure the materials from several local haberdasheries and shops that allow me to obtain a good product and sell it at a low price.
2. 3 adjectives to define your Brand.
The Satchel is a simple, fun and versatile brand.
3. Which is your creation to which you are particularly attached or which represents you the most?
Each bag by The Satchel, despite having the same shape, is unique to me, but the creation that is most close to my heart is certainly the first, a satin satchel in Ruby Red, a bright red, made almost as an experiment and that I pushed the creation of all the other bags and consequently of the brand.
4. How do you imagine your work / brand in 5 years?
Initially The Satchel was born almost like a game, an experiment born from the boredom of the lockdown, but in recent months we have received many requests and compliments that have led us to where we are now so who knows where we will arrive in a few years!
