All Zatchels handmade leather bags are crafted in England from fine quality leather using expert British craftsmanship. The tweed collection is no exception to this. It’s not just the leather used to make our tweed handbags that is exceptional in quality, but the tweed itself as well. The wool that we use to make the tweed for our handbags is handwoven and ecologically friendly. It’s also non-allergenic and so won’t cause itching or discomfort like lower quality wools have a tendency to do. The tweed handbag is finished with neat cable stitching and smart silver nickel buckles for a flawless and complete look.


At Zatchels, we know the importance of finding a handbag that’s just as functional as it is stylish. That’s why our tweed handbags never compromise on practicality. The Midi Tweed Satchel is 9 inches in size, providing plenty of room for carrying the essentials like smartphone, purse and keys, whilst still being super compact and lightweight. The bag is also organised into two compartments consisting of a spacious inner compartment and slimmer front compartment which allows you to access your belongings quickly and easily when you’re on the go.


One of our favourite things about the Zatchels Tweed Handbag is that it can be worn cross body, on the shoulder or as a clutch. Simply adjust the detachable strap as and when you need to in order to stay comfortable and adapt the bag to suit different occasions. Tweed handbags are perfect for adding a subtle and classic hint of pattern to formal going out looks, however are equally well suited to running errands in your favourite daytime look. Detaching the strap and carrying the tweed handbag is an easy way to transform it from a day to night bag.
