The Satchel: thoroughly British and all Made in Britain

There is no more British a bag than the satchel; and it seems that everyone has got one in their range for this Autumn.

Brands like the Cambridge Satchel Company make what is often thought of as the definitive item, but the Oxford English dictionary has it defined as follows:

Satchel: “a bag carried on the shoulder by a long strap and closed by a flap, used especially for school books.”

If you want to buy a satchel, then make sure that it’s made in Britain, as all of these beauties are.
