“ Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude.”
When the clock strikes midnight on the 31st of December, the world will raise glasses, or consume 12 grapes, or smash china at the front doors of friends and neighbors, or numerous other cultural rituals to acknowledge the time-honored tradition of sending off an especially frightening year of despair and tragedies, while subsequently greeting a new year of healing, gratitude, aspirations, and possibilities for the human race.
The entire world was turned upside down in March of 2020, but fortunately being in a state of quarantine has been a blessing for the Beau Satchelle team, to first, focus on our families’ well-being and affairs and second, to do some intense deep reflection work and rebuilding for our re-emergence into the luxury retail sector as a smaller luxury brand. Needless to say, it has been a challenging year for the service industry, including luxury brands whose brick and mortar spaces were shuttered for months. The selling of luxury relies on experiential and hands-on techniques to communicate exclusivity (i.e., smelling and caressing buttery leather, slipping on a cashmere sweater, intimate concierge VIP seating at music performance, test-driving a high-end performance car).
2020 was certainly successful in forcing the acceleration of consumers’ confidence in buying online. In addition, businesses will rely heavily on their online presence (along with a few traditional, alternate marketing methods) while being more creative than ever in presenting exceptional products and services for affluent and high net worth consumers. For instance, a couture designer friend of Beau Satchelle’s, realized that once he was prevented from participating in an overseas fashion show, instead shot his new collection with video and delivered his runway extravaganza to the show’s invited guests and influencers.
The holiday season is winding down, but discerning buyers will find other special occasions to purchase gifts for loved ones or clients. Upon reading an article for a Holiday Survey (which was taken pre-Covid-19), three poll questions stood out for our business… more than 59% of consumers will buy local, 54% are looking for one of kind gifts and 50 % of consumers say they will be involved in some self-indulging gifting for themselves; our kind of client!
Beau Satchelle believes there is a holiday in every day and we can still fulfill those needs, wants, or desires:
- Manufactured in America and Designed in Detroit with Pure Luxury in mind
- Handsome, Handcrafted, Functional and Quality Built Leather Luxuries
- All Pieces Are Hand-Stitched With No-Machines Using The Traditional Saddle-Stitch
- Only Premium and Exotic European and American Leathers are used (No Faux Leathers)
- With Patience and Attention to Detail, A Handbag Can Take 40 Hours to Build
We offer the perfect splurge gift for family members or friends. Our Grande Travel Briefcases are designed for busy professionals (who will eventually return to in-person meetings), with discerning tastes for a quality bag that satisfies all of their carrying needs. Our standard briefcase, made of English Bridle Leather is large enough to carry files, a laptop or tablet, and accessories needed for that important meeting but is so beautifully made that when placed on a table or chair (never on a floor) will draw the eye of everyone in the room. This briefcase can also be customized for any level of functional satisfaction, be it, an additional pocket for a charging station or slip pocket for concealed carry. The options are endless.
On the other end of the spectrum, to our handbag connoisseurs looking for a gorgeous clutch purse that will be the perfect complimentary accessory to your new evening gown or after-five attire, a Beau Satchelle Signature snakeskin clutch, can not only bring your heart joy before leaving your residence for a night out, but be an attractive conversation piece when arriving at your destination.
A clutch made from your desired dimensions to hold just the items needed to get you through hours of a special charity event. Roomy enough for a cell phone, a small card or money case, and a makeup bag. If red or blue is not suitable, this exquisite clutch can also be made in a variety of snakeskin colors including natural, multi-colored, or a custom color… the sky’s the limit!
Orders are being taken throughout the year so there no need to wait until a specific holiday since every day should be celebrated as a holiday. Therefore, why not start the process of having your very own bespoke luxury handbag designed and created just for you, or that special someone in your life.
Our complimentary phone or online consultation process is simple…
- A discussion about the recipient’s personality or tastes.
- Decide on the type of handbag or carrying case desired: Tote, Clutch, Top Handle, Messenger, Briefcase, Weekender, etc.
- Select size, color(s), function and use.
- Determine budget for a new bespoke luxury handbag.
From there, our artisan design team will carefully assist you with your decision making and guide you through the leather and hardware selection before the mock design process begins.

A final year-end personal message to family, friends, and the Beau Satchelle community. As the year comes to a close and the United States is experiencing the most fatal surge of this terrible pandemic, we hope Covid-19 will eventually be just studied in history books. Many of us are eager to get out and get back to some type of normalcy… whatever that means; but let us remember that our impatient decisions and actions affect not only our world, but the women and men who put their lives on the line for us every day.
We want to send our prayers and condolences to those who have someone who has passed on from life or are pandemic survivors working daily to get better. Let us all be thankful for family, friends, and the multitude of blessings that surround our lives. Continue to look forward to a better and brighter future.
Be encouraged. Be kind. Be purposeful. Be prosperous. –The Beau Satchelle Family
