Leather- For any leather satchel or crossbody bag you're thinking of buying, make sure it is made with full grain leather. This is so important because if the leather doesn't have the grain on it, it will look dumpy or tear at a young age. Every leather hide come with a top layer all grain. Those are the tough and tightly woven fibers that naturally protect the cow. But the hide is thick, so the tannery often splits it in half, the top from the bottom. Now they have two hides to sell. One expensive hide with all of the strong long lasting grain and one cheap low quality hide that looks nice but has no grain. This is why one leather satchel or crossbody bag asts longer and is more expensive than another.
Lining- We line it with a plush pigskin that is face down so it has that luxurious suede look and feel. But it's not just good looking, it's actually stronger than the cowskin. It is so much more impressive than any thin shiny fabric we could have chosen.
Zippers- Of all of the zippers that we could have chosen in the world to put on this leather satchel, we chose this special yet expensive zipper from Spain. You may find yourself sitting there zipping and unzipping your leather satchel over and over again. It is strangely satisfyingly and smooth.
I designed this leather satchel bag to be simple and no fuss, yet totally versatile. It's the perfect everyday carry bag and allows you to carry this bag several ways (crossbody, by handles or on shoulder). It's secure with a zip closure. It has two flat pockets inside for cell phones, pens, pencils and so much more. Of course it also has a key fob to make it easy access to your keys. The tote is also lightweight and a great leather satchel for the organized gal.
