When did satchels first become fashionable? The satchel bag did not become fashionable until the early seventeenth century. Satchel bags were typically finished in full leather, making them a fashionable addition with practicality and comfort.
From the Romans to Leather School Bags to the High Street, the history of the leather satchel is fascinating. The leather satchel has been used to transport items for generations — it even appears in Roman times under the name Loculus, which means ‘small place’ in Latin.
Around 1340, Middle English sachel was documented, deriving from Old French sachel, which was derived from Late Latin saccellum (“money bag, purse”), a diminutive of Latin sacculus, which was itself a diminutive of saccus (“bag”).
Leather satchels come in a variety of sizes and colours, including Classic (most popular) and Limited Edition (once they’re gone, they’re gone) options. Say welcome to a satchel bag with a modern twist, a women’s shoulder bag with a twist.
