This sleek "Eva" satchel is by Ellington, a small but fierce band of bag afficionados in scenic Portland, Oregon - where people actually walk & bike places and need bags that do more than be "in" for a fashion minute. "Whether you’re shopping at the local farmer's market or boarding a plane to Budapest, good handbag should carry whatever you need, wherever your adventures take you," they explain, adding that "we like to think that we don't just make handbags - we make friends for life." Friendly deets include high quality construction, a strong shoulder strap that's actually comfy, an interior organizer, handy pockets + one that's padded & fits most 15" laptops and luxe Italian lamb-leather that just gets better with age (again, like your fine self). This satchel is one of those classic designs that looks like you stole it from your style-savvy hubs or bf.
But there is one problem: deciding which of the three trendproof colors your new bag bestie should be.
Available for $300 from EllingtonHandbags.com.
