We can also add your monogram, typically your initials or first name, to the bag. This is normally positioned in the middle of the front flap or panel. Please note that full-stops and punctuation are counted as characters. Your selection is also CaSe-SeNsItIvE and items that are personalised with a monogram cannot be returned for a “full” refund (because there’s an alteration charge) so please choose wisely

Generally, we can fit around 6 characters on the bag, but some characters are slimmer than others, (Lowercase “i” for example is a lot thinner than an uppercase “W”) so we can sometimes fit around 8 letters or more in the same area.

We’ll contact you by email if there are any problems or if anything is unclear.

Monogram Style

Please refer to our customisation guide for some examples of monogramming.

Hidden Magnetic Fasteners

Traditionally our bags come fitted classic buckle fasteners (which is the default), but if you want hassle-free quick access then you can also choose to have hidden magnetic fasteners fitted behind the classic buckle.


Choose your preferred handle to add on to your perfect satchels. The bolt-on handle is put on to the satchel after it has been crafted and doesn’t change the shape of the front flap. The Briefcase handle is added during crafting and gives your satchel a more executive look. Keep in mind that when you choose the briefcase handle option the total height of the satchel will reduce by a couple of centimeters.

Strap Style

The standard strap width of this product is 19mm and you can wider 25mm strap depending on your preference. This can help with carrying heavier loads since it will support your shoulder better.

Strap Length

Standard shoulder straps are designed to fit people sized between 5’6” (168cm) to 5’10” (178cm). Our customisation guide covers this in more detail.

Shoulder Pad

If you predict the contents of your bag are going to be heavy then you may want to help spread the weight on your shoulder by using a shoulder pad. The shoulder pad is removable and slips over the shoulder strap. The shoulder pad can be added on to our 19mm and our 25mm wide straps. The shoulder pad is a little curved so that it fits comfortably over your shoulder. It is lined with suede to help cushion the downward force on your shoulder.

Shoulder Pad Colour

Choose the shoulder pad colour to go with your new bag. If you prefer to have your shoulder pad in the same colour as that of your bag then leave this black. Please refer to our colour guide to better understand the colours.

Interchangeable Backpack and Shoulder Straps

Add the comfort of a backpack with these backpack straps. Wear it either way that is most comfortable for you. Especially recommended for those who commute a lot and for those who love to ride the bicycle.

Volume Boost

Boost the volume of your bag’s gusset by 25mm to give you that extra space to carry all your important things.

Rear-Outer Slip Pocket

Add a rear-outer slip pocket to your new bag to get some extra space to store your items that require quick access. All this whilst staying true to our iconic style, design, and only using 100% real leather.

Gold Hardware

Everyone loves a bit of gold. Now you have the option to have gold coloured hardware in your favourite bag.

Remove Address Window

The address window is a standard feature of our classic Satchels but we can craft your satchel without one.

Gift Wrap

Are you getting this for someone special? Give it that special touch by having it personally gift wrapped by our team.

The classic leather Satchel has been around for centuries from Roman times to the high streets of fashion. And our iteration of the modern-day satchel was inspired by the Oxford and Cambridge leather satchels used for school.

This beautiful 12.5-inch satchel is hand-crafted in Liverpool England using high-quality ethically sourced heavy Milk Chocolate leather by our highly skilled craftsmen. It is stitched using a blend of cotton and nylon for extra durability and then finished with cast metal rivets and buckles with a silver coloured finish to complement your leather choice.

Its size has made this one of our customer’s favourite bags. Some may even call it the perfect sized satchel. The main compartment of this 12.5-inch Satchel has been designed to perfectly fit an iPad and some small notebooks. The front pocket gives this satchel added functionality giving you easy and quick access to all your modern day tech such as your mobile phone or even a 7-inch tablet.

Keeping true to the classic satchel style we have also included an address window on top of the front pocket of this satchel. This can be removed upon request but having this address window gives your satchel a true identity and we often get requests for replacement cards! This design of our classic satchel also features a long adjustable shoulder strap (up to 4-foot) giving the satchel great versatility. Adjusting the shoulder strap you can wear this satchel either as a cross-body satchel or have it by your side over your shoulder. The reverse side of the satchel features our logo ensuring quality is second-to-none and that it is an authentic British hand-crafted leather satchel.

The colour shown may vary slightly due to a number of factors such as the colour temperature of your monitor the lighting used in the photo studio or the colour of batch of the leather etc.

We want your satchel to be the best bag you’ve ever owned so if you would like more information please invest some time in reading our Size Guide and Colour Guide.
