S.O.S

The School of Satchel launches two striking styles this season: The Sam All-Leather Backpack
The Sam All-Leather Backpack is unisex and measures 18" x 10.5" x 3". It is ideal for students and professionals who want to upgrade their casual wardrobe with a classic and sophisticated statement piece. It has a compartment for laptops and is fully-lined with suede.
and a reissue of the bestselling Pablo Messenger bag in two new colors.
The Pablo Messenger Bag measures 15" x 10.5" x 3". It is a bestseller among undergraduates and those in the workforce. It features an interior compartment for laptops, push lock closure and also suede lining. This style sold out within a few weeks after its launch late 2012.
The School of Satchel is known for its handcrafted leather satchels made from genuine Philippine cowhide. SOS supports Philippine leather industries by using Filipino leather and local manufacturing.

The School of Satchel also supports the education of indigenous people in the Philippines through its community service program —SOS PLEDGES, in partnership with Cartwheel Foundation, Inc. by sponsoring Nylyn Supnet, 20, to Pamulaan Center for Indigenous People's Education in Mintal, Davao City.
According to Nylyn, "Being poor is not a valid reason for not attaining your goals in life." Nylyn's tribe, the Higaonon from Malaybalay, nominated her for the Young IP Leaders Program and Nylyn is now on her graduating year at the school. The main thrust of the program is to groom future community leaders and equip tribe adults with knowledge and skills to face challenges of the modern world and participate in community building.
Now on its third year, SOS Pledges is funded by proceeds of The School of Satchel's sales. For more information, visit www.theschoolofsatchel.com.
