practical and neat, axel post is perfect for work, but also brilliant for days out and adventures. with it's extra long strap it tucks neatly behind your back leaving your hands free, and you can depend on the oversized buckle to keep all of your possessions safe. the ticket pocket on the front keeps any extras handy too.
as with all the Catherine Edwards satchels, post is hand cut and handstitched from the finest british bridle leather from a single source tannery in the west midlands, giving the satchel a deep beautiful lustre over time.
axel was another variation on the satchel theme, it started life longer than it was wide, a shape I still like, but practically it was more tricky to retrieve small things from it's depths, a squarer version simply made life easier. it got its name from the american leather bags used by the mail service to store and deliver letters until the 1950's.
