My daughter started first grade yesterday and it made me think of my first day at school and how proud I was of my red leather Satchel. It was almost identical to the one above. Oh, the memories.

  1. That’s very interesting because just yesterday I was thinking of the blue leather satchel I had in elementary school. I searched and searched for a similar model to no avail and this is actually very similar. It’s perfect. Thank you for posting it.

  2. OMG that is gorgeous.

  3. Hey, I had a red leather satchel as well. Sometime back in the 1970s in Germany… My mom might still have it in her basement.

  4. Mine was exactly like that, but green! I still have it to this day, but sadly it is too small to carry all the stuff our boys need to carry to school in Canada. So we bought a Big Box Tornister … more space but still definitely Swiss:


  5. I always loved this style of bag/backpack, like it’s out of a french new wave movie.

  6. It’s beautiful.
    Have you seen Randoseru from Japan? We got a friend to bring us one for our first grader.

  7. The satchel that they offer here is so good. The design is so good with so many great options that come with this great satchel. CCTV Camera Toronto

  8. Hi, yes a lot of memories go along with it. I had a ‘ Kalbfell Tornister’ in Switzerland and got one for my Kids now. Great stuff. Thanks
