My love for satchels can be prominently seen in my handbag collection. The structure and design of a satchel is so classic and timeless and a good quality one can be hung on your shoulder or arm for many many years. When I was introduced to O'Bazzië Classics I was blown away at the beautifully crafted designed, which carried that timeless flare but also a unique contemporary feel. This brand is just starting with it only being founded of January this year and estimated official launch in Spring 2014 of the US. The company's home base is in Georgetown, DC of USA and founded by Ebenezer Obasiolu.
Here are some photos of the gorgeous O'Bazzië Classics satchels that I have fallen in love with:
Here is a touching story from the company founder Ebenezer Obasiolu on the creation of O'Bazzië Classics:
In short, my motivation for starting O'Bazzië Classics was the death of my beloved grandmother, who lived in West Africa. The last time i saw her was in 2004, I was twelve years old and that was when I was relocating to America (I never got to see her again after that). After several medical attentions, she took ill and passed away last year. Living in West Africa, modern-day medication has its limitations and transporting the medically ill halfway across the world for a better treatment cost a fortune. Due to such misfortune, I was not able to bring her to America for proper medical attention - I was only a twenty-year old college kid.
One year later, In January 2013, I decided that never again would I lose a loved one because of financial misfortune. At that very moment, O'Bazzië Classics was born. Out of boredom in my engineering classes, I would randomly sketch satchels and briefcases at the corner of my paper (lol don't even ask). I had so many crazy designs for them; i guess my creativity juices tend to flow in engineering classes. I turned my love for random satchel/briefcase sketches into a functioning company, with the sole aim of creating Simple, Well-designed, and Classic Leather Satchels with a timeless fashion personality.
I hope you have fallen in love with O'Bazzië Classics like me.
