Though you might not know the HLC Leather brand, you’ve likely heard of Cotacachi, Ecuador, and how well-crafted the leather goods are there. If you haven’t, well, now you know. Aside from that, the deal on this HLC Leather Messenger Bag is just too good to pass up.
Located in the north of Ecuador near Ibarra and Quito, Cotacachi is known as the “Leather Capital of Ecuador.” With only two entrances into the city, the first dumps you directly into the town’s main square, while the other feeds you right into what the locals call “Leather Street” or Calle 10 de Agosto. Because Ecuador is so environmentally conscious – having won several awards for their collective efforts – the treatment and making of leather seems to produce very little waste. More importantly, everything is handmade.
Which brings us back to HLC Leather’s satchel bag. If you’ve been searching for or know someone who needs a high quality leather satchel at a screaming deal, this is it. And it’s the perfect everyday carry size measuring in at 15” x 11” x 4” – large enough to hold a laptop, but not unnecessarily oversized.
With three internal compartments and two external zippered pockets, all your everyday essentials should be covered. Made from goat leather that’s been naturally treated and a canvas lined interior, this will surely last you a lifetime, if not longer. The leather will wear in beautifully over time, giving this vintage-inspired satchel an even more beautiful, lived-in look and feel.
