How to Find the Perfect Satchel Bag for Your Lifestyle

Find the perfect satchel bag with Brahmin's Style and Inspiration Guide. Explore tips and insights on choosing a satchel that complements your style.

Satchel-style handbags are the eternal "it" bag. The ultimate in style, these elegant and versatile bags hold your essentials and more. Brahmin satchel bags are meant to be worn your way — here's some helpful info to help you choose the perfect satchel.

What Type of Bag Is a Satchel?

A satchel bag is an all-purpose handbag that can hold everything you need whether you’re charging through your workday in the city or relaxing at a tropical resort. This structured bag has two short handles on top that make it supremely grab-and-go.

You can carry it in your hand like a briefcase, dangle it from the crook of your arm, or slip it over your shoulder with a removable and adjustable strap. Brahmin has a range of satchel bags to satisfy everyone from the minimalist to the maximalist.

Different Satchel Styles

Satchels are made for function, but they also deliver when it comes to fashion. Depending on the texture, colors, and style you choose, satchel-style handbags can be anything from understated to attention-grabbing and suit every occasion and mood.

Add a pop of color to your outfit, or choose a designer satchel bag in a wear-with-everything shade to neatly hold your laptop. Select the bag that's just right to stash the things you need for a late night out with friends or a romantic weekend getaway with someone special.

Explore Your Style With a Leather Satchel Bag

Brahmin satchel-style bags come in embossed and smooth leather. A soft leather satchel bag is a comfortable classic to depend on for a polished and professional look. Our embossed leather textures add a whole new dimension to your handbag.

Melbourne is our signature croc-embossed leather, and our snakeskin and lizard textures are classics that add an exotic style element. Mixed-material leather satchel bags, with a blend of patterns and textures, keep things interesting. All leather satchel bags from Brahmin are handmade with luxury leathers from Italy and around the world.

Go Hands-Free With a Crossbody Satchel Bag

A crossbody satchel bag keeps you organized and polished while letting you keep your hands free. Most Brahmin satchel bags come with removable, adjustable crossbody straps.

This style will be your trusted companion as you stroll museums in Paris or browse your favorite local farmers' market. A crossbody bag is perfect for a day out with family, and it's just the right bag to wear to a concert or a baseball game. You can sit down, stand up, and move around without worrying about where you last put your bag. Be prepared whenever adventure calls with Brahmin crossbody satchel bags.

Lighten Your Load With a Mini Satchel Bag

Mini satchel bags let you carry your essential items without the bulk. This bag is a great choice to take to a special event or on a night out. Brahmin mini satchel bags come in a rainbow of colors and a variety of textures.

Your bag can be a quiet complement to your outfit or make an outspoken fashion statement. While small in size, they're big on function — Brahmin mini satchels have back slip-in pockets for your cellphone and thoughtfully placed compartments inside.
