The School of Satchel's New Designs + Pamulaan 2013

You probably know how much I adore brands who produce Filipino-made crafts or items. The School of Satchel's definitely one of those, for they proudly use 100% genuine Philippine leather in all their products. And by the way, SOS launches two striking styles (which you'll surely love) this season:


The Sam All-Leather Backpack is unisex and measures 18in x 10.5in x 3in. It is ideal for students and professionals who want to upgrade their casual wardrobe with a classic and sophisticated statement piece. It has a compartment for laptops and is fully-lined with suede.


The Pablo Messenger Bag was released mid-July and measures 15in x 10.5in x 3in. It is a bestseller among undergraduates and those in the workforce. It features an interior compartment for laptops, push lock closure and also suede lining. This style sold out within a few weeks after its launch late 2012.

Another reason to love The School of Satchel? SOS PLEDGES. It's their community service program, a proud partner of the Cartwheel Foundation, Inc. in successfully sponsoring NYLYN SUPNET, 20, to Pamulaan Center for Indigenous Peoples' Education in Mintal, Davao City. The school is dedicated to the education of indigenous people (IP) in the Philippines.

According to Nylyn, “Being poor is not a valid reason for not attaining your goals in life”.  Nylyn’s tribe, the Higaonon from Malaybalay, nominated her for the Young IP Leaders Program and Nylynis now on her graduating year at the school.The main thrust of the program is to groom future community leaders and equip tribe adults with knowledge and skills to face challenges of the modern world and participate in community building.

The Cartwheel Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to give indigenous communities a future through quality and culturally relevant education.  It sees a nation where indigenous Filipino people can exercise their right to have quality education and active participation in community life.

On its third year, SOS PLEDGES is funded by proceeds of The School of Satchel's sales.
