This satchel is final sale and not eligible for returns.

This roomy Finch Satchel is sure to replace your current messenger bag and is sized to fit many things for long days of exploration or daily travels to and from work. Constructed with durable waxed canvas and finished with brown vegetable tanned leather, the Large Finch Satchel is a blank slate waiting to be marked with the adventures and stories of use. Throw it across your body and go. The flap covers the satchel for daily use, but for those city dwellers, travelers and those others wanting some more security, the satchel closes with a detachable vintage zipper that tucks in neatly when undesired.

Waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.

This satchel was built to endure. Load it up, bring it everywhere.

    Love it - with adjustments !

    Received my large finch in spice and it’s gorgeous . I wanted the big version rather than small as I like that look. But the strap, for me was terribly long! I like my bag high on the hip so got my leather hole punch and made holes to make it shorter- I love it more now!! I am short at only 5ft 4 in And it’s much more comfortable to carry now - as usual beautiful workmanship and the canvas is marking beautifully already- thank you from a happy London customer!

    So soft yet so durable! I love how easy everything fits plus it’s light weight. It holds a lot including my lab top. I highly recommend this bag for a teacher or artist on the go. ❤️️

    I've held off on purchasing

    I've held off on purchasing the large Finch because my regular Finch Satchel is perfection! But, with so many art supply odds and ends (and lunches and extra shoes) to bring back and forth to work, the Large Finch Satchel is the perfect art teacher's bag - indestructible as well as roomy. Thanks Peg & Awl!

    Really love it, now.

    I've had this bag (large Finch) just about a year. I have to say I was a bit disappointed at first since I was under the impression that the whole bag was lined, but only the tiny pockets are. So it seemed like not quite the quality I was expecting for the amount that I spent. Also, the strap was so stiff that it was almost impossible to move the metal button to a shorter hole. But I've used it daily for just about a year, and I do love it. The size is perfect, the Radish color is just what I expected, and it has held up so amazingly well, I am really hard on it and it still looks great.
