When someone told me about the Zatchels flash sale I rushed straight to the website. They were selling much of their range with at least 40% off and some bags were reduced by a massive 70%!
For those who aren’t familiar with the brand (I wasn’t before) you may guess by the name however that Zatchels sell satchels, real leather and manufactured in Leicester, UK. They do also make barrel and saddle bags which are cute – although I think the satchel is where it’s at – and they have a vast array of colours and prints so you can really get a bag for every outfit. It’s dangerous I tell you!
I decided to go for a bright pink leopard print 13.5″ satchel. Discreet it isn’t, but it satisfied the rock chick within me, and at £38 rather than £120 it was a bargain too good to miss. Of course I then justified the saving by immediately buying a fluoro green floral print one. Whoops! Please tell me I’m not the only one who works with that logic?!
Being stock items my bags were dispatched within a few days of placing my order, but some of the bags will be made to order and can take a few weeks (although the website will give you an indication of how long). You can customise your bag to an extent with handles, magnetic clasps, removable strap and personalisation.
The bags I ordered were sent separately so although I was in to take delivery of one (yay!) I was out when they came with the second and it’s now at the depot awaiting collection (boo!). I’m totally smitten with the pink satchel already, lovingly packed in its own dustbag with certificate of authenticity, and I just hope I love its sister as much when it arrives!
