    Owl Satchel Bag - GreyOwl Satchel Bags

    New in stock from Namaste are these fantastic fair trade canvas satchels with wonderful owl applique designs - available in Black, Burgundy and Grey.

    Handmade in India from a durable canvas, the bag is made in a satchel style and features a wonderful owl design on the front. The plain cotton canvas is set-off with contrast piping on the front and rear of the main body of the bag. The front flap fastens with a magnetic popper, however the main feature of this bag is the owl applique on the front flap.

    The owl itself is made from corduroy fabric, with a dotty printed cotton for the wings and chest. The design is embellished with felt and cotton, whilst embroidery is used for the finishing touches.

    The strap for this bag is made from thick canvas, and is attached by strong brass rings. The slider on the strap is also made from brass, giving this bag a good quality feel.

    Inside, the bag has a plain cotton lining. It also has an open pocket for your mobile phone, plus a zipped pocket which is large enough to secure your purse, keys or other valuables.
