The modern satchel handbag has come a long way since its predecessor. The original satchel looked like a mix between a book bag and briefcase, typically used by students and young professionals decades ago to store books, files, and other important items. A long strap, worn across the body, made it a convenient tool.
Today’s satchel purses have certainly evolved, and can have handles, a strap, or both. They are usually rigid in structure with a flatter bottom. While traditional satchels are typically made of leather in neutral shades, today’s satchel bags come in just about every color combination and pattern under the sun.
