School of Satchel x KeepCup

It's only a few weeks before Christmas, and everyone is in a rush to buy the perfect gift for their friends and family.  Recently, I learned about School of Satchel and KeepCup and they definitely have products that are perfect for gifts this Christmas.


First of all, let me tell you about School of Satchel, established in 2011, they are a homegrown Filipino brand and they create handcrafted genuine leather goods.  Their store inside The Park Fashion Lifestyle Store at the 4th level of Shangri-La Mall features a wide array of leather bags such as Satchels, Tassel and Saddle Bags, Laptop Bags, Messenger Bags, Diaper Bags and a Gadget Holder, to name a few.  They also have small leather goods, such as Wristlet Envelope Pouch, Sunglasses Case, Luggage Tag and Key Holder as well.

If there's one thing I really noticed about School of Satchel's products, apart from the good quality of leather that they use, the craftsmanship is really good, especially the stitching.  Whenever I buy leather goods, apart from good quality leather, and the hardware, I always check the stitching if it is straight and not crooked, this for me is a sign of good quality.

Also found in the same space as School of Satchel is KeepCup, an Australian Coffee Cup brand, whose mission is to encourage the use of reusable cups.  If you must ask, "why reuse?" It is because every minute over one million disposable cups are discarded to landfill.  KeepCup on the other hand are reusable, not disposable.  The reduction of goods we consume has a dramatic effect on reducing our environmental footprint, that is why KeepCup is also a good gift to give.


The Keep Cup Series:
  1. KeepCup Original - lightweight, unbreakable.  Retails for P600 (8oz), P700 (12oz) and 800 (16oz). 
  2. KeepCup Brew - made from fully tempered soda lime glass, for the premium specialty coffee consumer.  Retails for P1,000 (8oz) and P1,100 (12oz).
  3. KeepCup Long Play - is a double walled Keep Cup with a tempered soda lime glass interior and a tritan booster exterior.  The booster increases durability and protects your fingers from hot beverages.  Tritan is a durable plastic that has much greater shatter resistance than other plastics and glass.  It won't warp or crack in the dishwasher and unlike stainless steel, Tritan won't dent or ding.  Retails for 1,300 (12oz) and 1,400 (160z).




Here's a snapshot of my KeepCup Brew.  I love it!
