I’m a self-confessed bagaholic. Recently, I discovered School of Satchel (SOS), known for its handcrafted leather satchels made from genuine Philippine cowhide. SOS supports Philippine leather industries by using Filipino leather and local manufacturing. Yay to that! 😀
I’d like to share their two new styles for this season: The Sam All-Leather Backpack and a reissue of the bestselling Pablo Messenger bag in two new colors. Oh, and read this- these bags are unisex! So, it’s also a great gift idea for your man. 😉
The Sam All-Leather Backpack is unisex and measures 18 in x 10.5in x 3in. It is ideal for students and professionals who want to upgrade their casual wardrobe with a classic and sophisticated statement piece. It has a compartment for laptops and is fully-lined with suede.
The Pablo Messenger Bag will be released by mid-July and measures 15in x 10.5in x 3in. It is a bestseller among undergraduates and those in the workforce. It features an interior compartment for laptops, push lock closure and also suede lining. This style sold out within a few weeks after its launch late 2012.
Now, for an even more exciting news, The School of Satchel has a community service program called SOS Pledges, which is funded by proceeds of the The School of Satchel’s sales. It is a proud partner of the Cartwheel Foundation, Inc. (www.cartwheelfoundation.org) in successfully sponsoring Nylyn Supnet, 20, to Pamulaan Center for Indigenous Peoples’ Education in Mintal, Davao City. The school is dedicated to the education of indigenous people (IP) in the Philippines.
The Cartwheel Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to give indigenous communities a future through quality and culturally relevant education. It sees a nation where indigenous`s Filipino people can exercise their right to have quality education and active participation in community life.
