Why Real Leather?

Our number 1 tip: Ensure that you choose either a full grain satchel or a top grain satchel.

Our satchels are made with real full grain leather and top grain buffalo and cowhide leather. Real leather combined with expert craftsmanship is extremely durable.

Our men’s satchels use the very top layer of the hide and will last the longest. Suede leather, saffiano leather or nubuck leather are acceptable alternatives for long lasting bags.

Satchel Styles

Full flap satchels

These are an increasingly common type of satchel that you'll see many of on this page. You can really show off a quality leather with these long pieces of uninterrupted hide.

Flapped satchels are really easy to get into when you are on the move. But they still have room for your wallet, card case, wristlet, and up to a 15 inch laptop.

These medium satchels make the perfect gift. Either as a graduation, father’s day or mother’s day gift, these are a wonderful way to show your loved ones how much you care. Check out our gift guides for more information.

Messenger Bags

This is the catch all term for large satchels that do not have full flaps, but are also not briefcases. Think Indiana Jones or your stereotypical professor from England. They are usually top handle bags, but you will want one with a shoulder strap for those longer commutes.

These shoulder bags usually come in a rich shade of brown or black. But other colors are available such as red, grey and coffee. And they are crafted for functionality and versatility to be able to perfect as work bags or school bags.


Sometimes referred to as hobo bags, tote bags or purses, these women’s satchel bags are a new arrival at The Real Leather Company.

Our handbags are great for storing all you need for the day in a stylish smooth leather bag. They are made from one smooth long piece of leather. And they can come with a zip top to keep your goods secure. Tassels can be a fun extra.

1. Can leather satchels get wet?

Leather satchels generally have water resistance, but are not fully waterproof. Real leather has some natural water resistance, but excessive exposure to moisture can still cause damage.

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag.

Caught in a rainstorm? Let your leather bag completely air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying as this can damage the leather. Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape. This also helps to absorb moisture from the inside.

2. How do I clean my leather satchel bag?

Treating a real leather satchel handbag with care can extend its life by years.
