We’re getting all nostalgic about these amazing vintage-look satchels – and there’s so much to love about them. Not only are these Cartables coming to our shores, they’re not just for kids. Yes, they also come in adult sizes – bliss!
Scallyoop is the first Australian retailer to stock these stunners, from sweet French label Bakker Made With Love. The Cartables are made from beautiful Indonesian fabrics in vibrant colours – punctuated with unique prints.
It’s the satchel style that has us hooked – a throwback to the book bag satchels our grandparents toted to school. The metal front clips keep the two pockets on the front secure, and open to reveal a large interior pocket. Made from thick canvas, they’re sturdy and durable, and the inside is lined with waterproof polyester.
The Cartables come in three sizes: the mini ($64.95) is perfect for children. What little miss or master wouldn’t feel rather self-important carrying one of these to kinder! The satchels also come in moyen (medium – $74.95) and bretelles (large – $84.95). The range of fabrics is achingly broad – just try and choose a favourite from the eight styles!
The mini and medium have a top handle, and adjustable shoulder strap, while the large can be used as a backpack thanks to the adjustable, padded straps.
The good news is you only have to be slightly patient to get your hands on these beauties. They’re due to arrive in early July, but you can pre-order now through Scallyoop.
