About us

Once upon a time in the charming town of Charleston, South Carolina, nestled along the picturesque coastline, there was a remarkable handbag business called "Southern Style Satchels." For a quarter of a century, this small, family-owned business had been crafting and delivering high-quality bags at affordable prices to the local community and beyond.

It all began with Sarah and Daniel, a couple with a deep passion for fashion and a dream to create something beautiful that would stand the test of time. They believed in the power of locally made products and the importance of supporting their community. With that vision in mind, they opened their small handbag shop in a cozy corner of Charleston's historic district.

Southern Style Satchels quickly gained a reputation for its commitment to quality. Each bag was meticulously crafted by a team of skilled artisans, using the finest materials sourced from all over the world. Sarah and Daniel's dedication to quality control meant that every handbag that left their shop was a testament to their craftsmanship.

Over the years, Southern Style Satchels flourished. Word spread about the business's unique combination of affordability and quality, drawing customers not just from South Carolina but from neighboring states as well. The shop became a local treasure, and tourists visiting Charleston made it a point to stop by and purchase a piece of Southern style.

As the business grew, so did the need for space and resources. Sarah and Daniel were not content with merely serving their local community; they had bigger dreams. They decided to expand their reach and establish a secondary warehouse in Istanbul, Turkey. This strategic move allowed them easy access to the rest of the world in terms of shipping.

The Istanbul warehouse was a game-changer. It enabled Southern Style Satchels to fulfill international orders swiftly and efficiently, making their handbags accessible to fashion enthusiasts across the globe. Customers in Europe, Asia, and even the Middle East could now experience the charm of Charleston through these handcrafted bags.

The heart and soul of Southern Style Satchels remained firmly rooted in Charleston, where Sarah and Daniel continued to work closely with their team of artisans. They often visited their Istanbul warehouse, ensuring that the same level of dedication and craftsmanship was maintained on both sides of the world.

As the years passed, the business thrived, but Sarah and Daniel never lost sight of their initial goal: providing high-quality handbags at affordable prices. They believed that fashion should be accessible to all, and their commitment to this principle never wavered.

Today, as Southern Style Satchels celebrates its 25th anniversary, it stands as a testament to the power of a dream, hard work, and a commitment to quality. Sarah and Daniel's handbag business has not only become a household name in Charleston but has also left an indelible mark on the global fashion scene.

The legacy of Southern Style Satchels is not just in the bags they create but in the lives they have touched and the communities they have supported. It's a story of passion, dedication, and a little bit of Southern charm, making the world a more stylish and inclusive place, one handbag at a time.
