Made in Belfast. Since 1962. The Vintage Satchel Company has been stitching satchels in Belfast for over fifty years and they're still at it. They use ethically sourced sustainable leather in their Belfast factory, procured from one of the few remaining tanneries in the UK. The traditional school bag has found new expression in it's boxy shape with funky colours, chunky stitching and that first-day-at-school leather smell. Rows of them trooped into the studio to be shot recently and every handle had to be slunk around or hung down on fishing wire just so. Plenty of photoshopping later and the clipped-out png files were ready to be dropped on top of whatever. I've used some colour-block backgrounds here to show off the job that was in it.
