Competition: Win a traditional leather satchel worth over £100 COMPETITION CLOSED




Yesterday I promised to tell you how you can get hold of your very own beautiful leather satchel, so here goes.

It’s a super-simple competition, and one lucky winner is going to be very happy, not to say stylish, as this is the fashionista’s bag of choice right now.


One winner will get a satchel of their choice from The Leather Satchel Company. You can choose any size or colour, from the more traditional browns and greens, to the zingy fashion shades of hot pink or pillarbox red. I would choose the purple, but then I can’t enter *boo hoo*.

Sizes start at 11 inches (handbag size) through to the largest 15 inch size which is big enough for a laptop.

pink leather satchel Your prize satchel can also be inscribed with your initials and can be shipped to anywhere in the world, so you can enter wherever you are.

Your bag will be created specially for you by a British team of leathersmiths, based in Cheshire since the 1960’s.

It comes with a five year guarantee, so in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, they’ll repair it free of charge.


All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment below answering this question:

“What would you put in your satchel?”

Put your email address in the comment form so we can get in touch if you win. Your email address won’t be shown or passed on to any 3rd parties or used for marketing purposes.

EXTRA CHANCES TO WINnavy leather satchel

Leaving a comment below is the main way to enter, but you can improve your chances if you also follow The Leather Satchel Company on Twitter @LeatherSatchel and/or ‘Like’ them on the Leather Satchel Company Facebook page. So if you do all three, that gives you 3 chances to win.

Gail from the Leather Satchel Company will be cross-checking this, but it would help her immensely if you could mention in your comment below if you are also entering via Twitter and Facebook as well.


This competition closes at midnight on Friday 15th July. Gail will choose the winner at random and will be in contact to sort out which beautiful satchel you’d like as your prize. And then the company’s leathersmiths will set to crafting your bespoke bag!

  • I’d use my satchel as a mobile office for the days I work on the hoof, so it would contain my netbook, smartphone, notebook, digital recorder, flashdrives, business cards and pens, as well as my handbag paraphernalia (lippy, mirror, contact lens kit, foldaway hairbrush, compact, tissues, etc). And of course, whichever good book I have on the go for those idle moments when only a good read will do.

  • Vintage records because i collect them, sea shells because they are pretty,a diary to right my thoughts and anything i find on my travels that catches my eye and captures a memory.

  • Sarah

    I like the idea of having the bag equivalent of a swiss army knife. I’d have timetables, a railcard, an oyster card, a first aid kit, an umbrella, notepads, a fountain pen, a biro, ink cartridges, a phone, sweets, a camera, a gps, and a good book. Needless to say these things don’t all fit in my current bag…

    Have followed and liked.

  • I’d probably retire my existing not-really-a-change bag, and put the baby change kit in it. That way I can be the coolest mum in town, and my beloved won’t complain about having to carry a girly change bag.

    (Also followed on twitter @meedja and on facebook)

  • Pixie

    Oh wow! What a lovely giveaway. I’ve been lusting after these for some time.

    I’m about to need a larger bag to carry around all manner of mum related items when my baby is born in November. So, my idea is to use the satchel to store nappies, lotions and potions etc whilst still looking fashionable and relevant. OR, I might just fill it with my camera, a picnic and go to Whitby to enjoy the seaside before it’s too late. 🙂


    at the moment I would have it lots of things to keep me cool on the bus ride to walk plus a good book to let the minutes pass quickly

  • rachel

  • I would keep a supply pretty writing notebooks, nice pens (with LIDS, no ink stains required), the laptop and a Do Not Disturb sign. That Is All.
    And it would sit where I could see it, stroke it, and snatch it when I manage to steal away for My Time.
    I have tweeted (@littlestuff), ‘liked’ and also added to LittleStuff’s favourites. Yes I DO want it very badly indeed 🙂 )

  • Well – it would be hard as my cat loves bags so I expect once she jumps in there won’t be much room for anything else!

  • Laura

    I like knowing that I’ve got everything with me that I could possibly need – but in my case that usually just amounts to at least two books, a bottle of water and knitting needles with wool (and of course my wallet and keys). I think it’s more important to be able to keep yourself entertained than dry, but that might be because I don’t own an umbrella!

  • Laura

    Also – am now following on twitter – @laurafoxgill

  • I would use this bag

    – to put a book in to read in the park.

    I’d put my football boots, some clean y-fronts and a card to say thank you to my darling wife when I gave her the satchel as a gift!

  • Natasha

    iPad (when i eventually get one,) my blackberry, ipod, keys, hand cream, vaseline, notepad, tissues, purse. Hmmm… what else?

  • Amy

    I do not think I would want to put anything in it – I would prefer to hold it out in front of me at eye level to just look at the beautiful iconic design, I’ll have to be careful not to get drool on it though – there isn’t a stain devil for drool on leather (so the shop assistant told me as I was being thrown out of a jimmy choo store hee hee). I would choose one of the more natural colours, a style classic

  • Sierra M

    I would carry a novel, my organizer, a notebook for drawing, pens and pencils and my wallet.
    I’m already a fan on facebook.

  • Dina

    Oh my goodness, what a terrific prize! I’m off to university next year and, if I get into the one I want, a satchel would not look out of place amidst the dreaming spires of the ancient town. I would carry all of my sketchbooks and pencils in my satchel – everything an artist needs.

    I wanted a satchel for so, SO long, you cannot even imagine! This would make me terribly ecstatic if I win.

  • Delia Hynek

    Wow,this satchel is a work of art! In my satchel, I would put a mixture of essentials and luxury items: a pen; a notebook for shopping lists and inspiring ideas; a red lipstick (to the shagrin of my husband); the book I am currently enjoying; the “essential” cell phone. This bag would put a smile on my face everytime I’d look at it.

  • Nicola Cooper-Abbs

    Okay, okay, I’ll tell you what the note says. It says: “Give me your satchel”

  • I would put in only things for ME after stuffing my bag with nappies, wipes, bottles and toys all year! As I’m back to work soon it would be perfect for my Kindle to give me that precious reading time back on the tube. And my phone, notebook and pen for pretending to be a grownup writer person.

  • Oh my, I LOVE these satchels. I would like a red one, to replace my v tatty laptop bag. My mac would go in there, it goes everywhere with me, as does phone, pad, pens, business cards, lip balm, hand cream, tissues, glasses, sunnies, nail file and tea bags! The red also compliments my company colours – a match made in heaven.

I work from home a lot, and transfer many documents back and forth from my boss’s home therefore I would use it for lots of paperwork! I’d also keep my own supply of stationery as she often runs out and forgets to replace! My lunch and daily treats for her dog Charlie would also find a space too!
    Following on twitter @ellielucky and FB too 🙂

  • Oooh, let’s see. I would put books in. And more books. And get so carried away that I would barely be able to pick it up.

    But I would persevere.

Front pocket would contain two slices of stale bread for the ducks. My satchel would be pink and the window would contain a card saying “Aunt Lucy’s Bag of Tricks”

  • That red bag is simply amazing. What a classy, yet bold bag.

    I would put my 13″ Macbook, Moleskine journal, iphone,my marc jacobs sunglasses, and some shiny lip gloss in there 🙂

  • Gabriella

    I had a lovely satchel when in primary school, but it was a hand me down one and it been scrawled in ink with names that did not belong to me and it was brown. I loved my satchel and it was not filled with just books and pens but personally objects that I liked and wanted to see when I opened my satchel. If I won a satchel I would like a bright red one to represent positive thinking and in this satchel will go my mind maps, pens and paper. Almost like the things I put in it years ago but this time the satchel would be mine from new.

  • My Moleskine notebook – two beautiful products – one to accompany me on my adventure – the other to record it!

    Navy is the one for me!
