I’ve written about 88 Handbags before, when I reviewed their Quilted Crossbody Bag, which I love for an evening out when I only need my phone, keys and few credit cards. Of course, for every day I need something a little bigger to accommodate my wallet, hand lotion, makeup bag and miscellaneous items. I fell in love with the 88 Color Block Satchel in Navy because it has plenty of room for everything I need while still be compact and stylish!
88 is a Vegan brand so this bag, like all of their handbags, is made of the highest quality synthetic leather and custom designed hardware with a eye on environmentally friendly materials and designs. The vegan leather used on this bag is soft, supple and looks great. I adore the color of the bag – the navy and tan combination makes it easy to coordinate with. This satchel looks professional enough for work, but also makes a great bag for an afternoon of shopping.
The bag’s dimensions are 11-1/2″W x 7-1/2″H x 6-1/2″D, making for a very spacious inside that accommodates everything I need in my purse and has two open pockets and one zippered pocket that are great for organizing cellphones, pens and lip balm. There is also a zipper pocket on the outside that is a very nice size and makes important items accessible. You can carry the bag by the handles, or the included 23″ shoulder strap. As for quality – not only does the vegan leather look vibrant and feel great, but the stitching is beautifully done and the gold hardware lends an elegant look to the bag. One thing I love about 88 Handbags is their attention to detail. The hardware is sturdy and the zippers work smoothly and the bag overall looks much pricier than it is!
The bag is priced at $49.99, making it an affordable buy, especially for a vegan and environmentally sound product. 88 Handbags goes beyond being environmentally sound as well. By partnering with Care International a percentage of each purchase goes towards providing girls around the world with access to education, empowering young women and fighting poverty.
