About SatchelsSometimes it seems the term satchel is now being used to describe a multitude of shapes. However, generally, satchels are handbags that have a top closure, top carry handle, and a flat bottom. Often they have a triangular side profile and have double handles - one set to carry by hand and a strap to wear over the shoulder. It's this flat bottom and triangular side profile that can help you distinguish a satchel from other bags like hobo bags.
Satchels, like most purses, are available in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials from designer labels and affordable brands alike. Many come with organizational pockets and compartments to help you find items quickly and easily. This is one reason why satchel handbags continue to be some of the most popular everyday bags. Another reason is that satchels tend to be the perfect size to hold all your essentials without being bulky. They tend to be neither oversized nor mini, but simply just right.
