Noir and Gunmetal Reader Satchel

I absolutely love this bag. Have a very old Sans Beast small crossbody bag which unfortunately are not being made anymore, and purchased this one as my old favourite was getting a little tired - in saying that I still use it everyday! This new bag is so versatile - the strap (purchased the Noir Underground Strap) is so comfortable and I love that I can take that off and use this as a smart classy handbag for an evening look. It fits my glasses, key, SB wallet comfortably and is not too bulky or heavy. Would thoroughly recommend this bag.

The perfect LBB

The perfect little black back....don’t be turned away by the little. This bag is the organisers dream, with so many pockets and options for you keys and wallet. Love when I’m on the go this bag is big enough to hold all my stuff but not too big that it’s feels like I’m carrying so much if you get me. Couldn’t recommend this bag anymore then I already do

Superb service

My daughter selected this item as her Xmas birthday present - however when I came to order it the item was out of stock. Without much hope I contacted the company to ask if they were having any more in stock. They responded within 24 hours to reserve 1 for me the following day. I then received an email relating to payment after a few tech tweaks I paid for it not really expecting it to be with us in time. However it arrived with about a week to go needless to say my daughter was delighted with the purchase when she opened it on Xmas Day. Thank you so much . I would happily use this company again

So versatile!

This was the only bag I brought on my recent holiday to Sydney and it was perfect! I was able to fit all my essentials (iPhone, lippies, a small notebook and pen, Opal and bank cards) and still have some space for little things I pick up along the way. I love how it works for “dressier” looks and still look casual and chic when I change to the Barricade Strap. I’m so pleased with the overall quality of this bag! Very glad I picked this as an early Christmas present for myself!

Too busy admiring my new bag.

I love everything about my new everyday bag, the gunmetal hardware is my absolute favourite. I can easily carry all my essentials in this classic, high quality, animal friendly satchel. The designs are so unique. You won’t be disappointed with your investment.

Best purchase decision

This satchel is absolutely stunning and so versatile. I have received so many compliments while using it and i enjoy styling it with the barricade strap as well. I have never been a fan of shoulder/cross body bags but this thing is something else. Highly recommend if you’re on the fence to take the plunge!

Finally! Vegan Luxury in Australia

Having been vegan for a few years, I no longer had any luxury bags...that is until I found Sans Beast! I am OBSESSED! This bag is the perfect size for all the essentials and it has been so well thought out, from the different compartments, card slots, soft inner lining, to the detailing on the buckles! I want one in every colour!

My first purchase from Sans Beast and I am impressed with: the quality, the obvious care and consideration that has gone into the design; the fabrication; finishes; and the ease of purchasing.The bag is exactly what I was looking for and I can't fault it.
