I received an amazing gift set in the mail which were a beautiful leather passport travel folio and a personalized luggage tag with my initials JBL from the new travel collection of The School of Satchel that was recently released in March 2012. I adored the pieces! Aside from being very useful especially in the summer months where traveling is essential, the passport holder is carefully designed to fit all your necessary paperwork to travel abroad. The bag tag with my name's initials embossed on it JBL is such a stunning identification measure, with its stylish, sleek design, I'm sure to look forward to traveling with this attached to my luggage.
I have known about the brand ever since it debuted as I saw it as a practical and amazing alternative (not to mention- PINOY MADE) alternative to the every so popular Cambridge Satchel. I have always loved the shape of a satchel- it's very preppy, functional and structured- and this brand specializes in creating them in the finest materials possible. I own two Cambridge satchels which did major damage to my bank account as I decided I needed to get two- one in neon orange and one in pink. Thinking back, I would've definitely gone for the more classic and mature colors the brand offers (alongside their quirky hues as well) as it fits the bag's design and aesthetic better.

We found the perfect partner in KaEskwela who aims to provide equal education opportunities for all and also worked with an international organization called Service for Peace who ensured that the schoolbags went to deserving children. S.O.S supporters immediately responded to the appeal to help 200 public school students through purchasing the two-tone satchels. And the S.O.S brand provided the platform for all this to be set in motion.” says Bianca Donato, owner of the leather goods brand.
