Prepare yourself for some satchel envy ladies (and gentlemen), last week I was invited to the Zatchels factory for the launch of their new Factory Shop. It just so happens that the Zatchels factory is in Leicester, about 20 mins from my hometown, the actual bags that you can buy in shops and online are made there! Claim to fame there Leicester. Today I’m going to write about the new shop but we were also given a tour around the factory and got to see how each and every satchel is made which I will tell you all about next week.
The new Zatchels Outlet store is based just around the corner from the factory and boasts a wide selection of the bags that the company manufacture including the satchels, saddle bags and the small leather accessories. The shop is like a bag lovers dream, as soon as you walk in your eyes are greeted with the amazing selection of colours that the bags come in, I was particularly drawn to the pastel shades and the lovely metallic hues. The shop features a mix of factory seconds, samples as well retail quality bags – the prices are set accordingly. I had a little look at some of the seconds whilst I was in the shop and honestly the quality is still amazing, I couldn’t even find the mistakes on a couple of them! Just goes to show the excellent quality control that Zatchels adhere to.
The shop on Charter Street, Leicester is open Wednesday- Friday 2pm-6pm and on Saturday’s from 10am until 5pm. There is also plenty of parking outside, and it’s only about a 5 minute walk from the town centre.
