Zatchels store York

A couple of weeks ago a very nice little invite popped into my email box for the grand opening of the Zatchels shop in York. As far as events go which warrant booking the day of work and hopping on a train across Yorkshire....this event defiantly counted as one of them.

One of the main reasons I love Zatchels (other than the amazing sale at the moment) is all their products are hand produced here in the UK. Leicester to be precise. They took up the traditional skills in the area from the shoe making factory's and began manufacturing modern satchel style bags in 2011. 

If you look at the bags in details its quite amazing the amount of time and effort that goes into making each bag and it really makes it feel that little bit more special. Plus the smell of leather as you enter the shop for me is always a sign of good quality. You don't get that from many shops now do you. 

Despite all the products been made by traditional techniques it still doesn't stop the brand having a quirky edge with Zatchels bags ranging from metallic reds and blues to shocking neons. My favourite been the rose print bags, inspired by the Yorkshire rose.
