Satchel & Page is:

1. Heirloom quality leather bags that you will pass down to your son. Custom-made, 6-8 oz. vegetable-tanned leather which is 2-4 times thicker than our competitors. Handstitched Seams and no shortcuts. These bags will get better with age.

2. Authentic, 1940s design - Inspired by my Grandfather’s map case from WWII, these bags are understated and timeless with functionality for today's technology. We're obsessed with the details from this era - from the side riveted panel on our Mailbag to the antique hardware on our Map Case.

3. Fairly Priced. Premium men’s leather bags cost anywhere from $500 - $1000, and that’s with cheap, thin leather disguised by heavy lining (more on this below). We cut out the middleman, don’t spend money on big offices and PR firms, and take less margin so we’re able to offer our bags at a great value.

4. Guaranteed for life. Simple. We will repair or replace any defects in materials or workmanship.

Update For All Backers Who Pledge For A Bag:


The Story

We are Satchel & Page from Austin, TX. We've been crafting waxed canvas and leather bags for 2 years and have learned quite a bit about sourcing, manufacturing, and fulfillment.

The more we have worked with leather, the more we admire the material for its complexity, beauty, and challenge. Our current leather project was inspired by our founder, Daniel's Grandfather and his Map Case from WWII.

Our philosophy: 

  • Obsession over the little details 
  • Be unique
  • Treat our customers (you) like family

Your Contribution

We have spent the last year designing this collection and selecting the perfect leather and hardware. For our primary leather, we worked hand in hand with the tannery to develop a custom 8 oz., vegetable-tanned cowhide that is hot stuffed with a proprietary blend of oils and waxes to give it a unique pull-up effect. You won’t find this leather anywhere but here. We have received final prototypes and are now ready to start production. We just need your help to meet the minimum order quantity ($15,000) for our custom leather from the tannery and begin production. 

The Collection

We are offering our new collection at a 20-35% discount to our Kickstarter supporters. 

Please note: All bags come with an adjustable, leather shoulder strap (up to 55 inches) + a dust bag.

Why Satchel & Page?

Here’s the low down on our leather and construction methods that sets the quality of our products apart. We don’t cut corners and we spare no expense to make the highest quality bag possible. We're so obsessed with leather, we made an infographic:

Risks and challenges

The main risk of any project like this is delays in materials and production. This is where our experience comes in. We’ve executed big projects like this and we know what it takes. During our young life as a bag company, we’ve gained valuable experience in sourcing, manufacturing, and fulfillment. Last year, we were featured in Southern Living and GQ magazine (www.satchel-page.com/pages/press), and delivered on a large influx of orders with very few hiccups. This project should go even smoother, as we have carefully planned each step and have lined up the best possible manufacturing, quality control, and fulfillment partners in order to deliver on time and at the highest standards of quality.

We pride ourselves in providing great customer service and promise to communicate frequently and openly with you, so please support this project with confidence.
