A leather satchel is likely the oldest and most classic pieces of luggage ever made. In fact, leather satchels are often discovered as artifacts in archaeological excavations.
In 1991, Otzi, 'The Iceman' was discovered by two Austrian hikers in the Ötztal alps. After carbon dating and studies it was determined that he died about 5300 years ago. One of the items that was found with him was a small leather satchel (still intact) which contained some herbs and a few small tools. This says a few things:
- The leather satchel is a classic functional pouch used for thousands of years
- Leather is one of the most durable natural materials available
- Otzi had great taste
