Do you need a reason to purchase a new bag for the summer? We don’t need a reason to buy a new bag, but just in case you do, let us help you out! I mean a bag always fits, can freshen up an old outfit, and there’s always room for a new bag in your closet, right?
In Franklin, boutiqueMMM just received a new shipment of bags from The Leather Satchel Co. The Leather Satchel Co. are a group of British Master Craftsmen that make satchels based on the traditional style of Oxford and Cambridge schools, as well as, other traditional accessories.
The company was started in 1966 by Steven Hanshaw and is still a family-owned business. Throughout the early-to-mid 1960’s, Steven operated a small street stall selling leather goods that he made. One day, while exhibiting in London, Steven was presented with an opportunity by a local headmaster – to make satchels for an independent school based in Hammersmith. Due to the high demand for these satchels, Steven was soon joined by his two younger brothers – Barry and Paul Hanshaw – and together they established their first workshop on Smithdown Road in Liverpool.
Over time The Leather Satchel Co. has continued to work other leather goods beyond the satchel. These handmade leather goods are highly sought after in the UK with a few retailers carrying the line in the US. Lucky for us, you can find a whole selection right here in downtown Franklin at boutique MMM.
The Leather Satchel Co. has been featured on the pages of Vogue, Look, Elle, Grazia and GQ. Their satchel designs have been worn by celebrities like Alexa Chung, Dakota Fanning, and Zooey Deschanel.
These bags come in a variety of colors so that you can always be perfectly coordinated. Stop by and visit Maria at boutiqueMMM located at 238 Public Square, Franklin. Hours of operation are Monday – Saturday 10 a – 6 p, Sunday noon – 5 p. Follow them on Facebook for the latest offerings and updates.
