Great shape, stunning usability, and amazing history are what the satchel bag is all about. No matter what the purpose, satchels have been used by men even when there were no cars or bikes and can safely be said as the oldest, most popular way of carrying documents. The origin of these bags dates back to the 1700s when schoolboys used these as a means of carrying books. The size can vary from design to design but the flat bottom and two short handles on top are consistent. The most common material that was used to make bags, shoes, or even men’s wear was leather back in those days, and satchels were crafted out of purest forms of leather as well. That tradition has been kept alive, although other bags i.e. messenger, handbags, and purses are made from all kinds of materials for the satchel, only leather is used.
What Is A Satchel?
There has been evidence that the satchel dates back to the Roman Times. They were mostly worn by soldiers to carry personal belongings and ration. Simple in shape yet fully capable to make every head turn with its super cool and subtle designs. It is an extremely ideal accessory for carrying items to work, college, or a professional business meeting where you need to create an irresistible impression. With the comfort of the solid straps that can either be worn across the body or over the shoulder., traveling as far as you need is not an issue anymore, thanks to satchels. Back in the times, these bags were called Loculus which translates as ‘little place’ in Latin.
What Does A Satchel Handbag Look Like?
Basically, the satchel is a stunning piece of accessory that adds to your elegance and sophisticated attire. It comes with a long shoulder strap that helps wear the bag in a number of ways. You can either let it hang on one shoulder or use it as a crossbody bag. The front flap is the signature, standard design of the satchel. The inside looks very spacious and roomy with multiple compartments and pockets. Although they were initially used to carry books and documents, however, over the years, satchel became a popular choice as a laptop bag as well.
What Is The Difference Between Tote, Satchel, and Handbag?
These bags might actually be used for the same purpose but their style, size, and feel may vary a great deal. First and foremost, the tote is purely a lady’s bag. Mostly they have an open-top along with two short straps. The tote is crafted from a single uncut piece of leather or any other material and doesn’t have multiple compartments on the inside.
As far as the handbag is concerned, there are unlimited designs and sizes out there that picking one can actually be an overwhelming task. It comes with multiple compartments and pockets on the inside as well as outside. The straps could either be long, short, or both. It usually has more add-ons than a tote i.e. zippers, d-shape rings, hooks, or studs.
As for the satchel, the back extends to form a flap that folds over and covers the front. It can either come with a snap or a buckle closure depending on the design. The long, soft, and durable shoulder strap makes it comfortable.
