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.

Bolt-on Handle

A Bolt-on handle can be added on top of the front flap of most our bags to help with carrying. It retains the curved style of the flap.

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 by adding 20mm to the gusset 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

The British are known around the world for many reasons one of which without a doubt is our famous festivals. Our frequent festival goers asked for a satchel small enough to carry what they need yet durable enough to sustain and survive many festivals to come. With that the 8.5-inch “Festival” Satchel was born.

Our 8.5-inch “Festival” satchel is hand-crafted in the Liverpool England using high-quality ethically sourced heavy leather in Loch Blue leather by our highly skilled artisan leather-smiths. It is stitched using a cotton-nylon thread for extra durability and finished with silver-coloured cast metal rivets and two traditional buckle fasteners.

This 8.5-inch festival satchel was inspired by our classic satchel with its own twist. It comes with one main compartment that provides plenty of space to carry all that you will need for a night out. Easily fit your mobile phone lipstick small touch-up kit keys cards passport etc. As with all our classic satchels this includes the traditional address window making it a true satchel.

Another great feature of this festival satchel is its long adjustable shoulder strap (up to 4-foot). It allows you to wear this satchel crossbody or over your shoulder simply by adjusting its length. The reverse of the satchel features our logo ensuring quality is second-to-none and that it is an authentic British hand-crafted leather satchel. We have been crafting our own satchels and bags in our UK workshops since the late 1960s and our team comprise of artisan leather-smiths and members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen.

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.
