The Melissa Satchel by Frye is an ideal everyday bag, made from beautiful pull up leather with signature Melissa buttons. This satchel is inspired by the iconic Melissa button boot and makes a perfect companion. Featuring rich leather construction with a luxurious interior that will hold all your essentials, it has the carryall that gets better with age.

Since the Frye company was established in 1863, they continue using the same handcrafted techniques that show a sense of pride in their workmanship. From the antique pull-up Italian leather to the fine stitching detail, the Melissa Satchel has the focused attention that exemplifies the Frye brand.

Functional details include two leather handles and one adjustable crossbody strap with top zip closure. The interior is lined with a back wall zip pocket and two open accessory pockets. The exterior hardware has a rustic antique finish and is all metal.

Will The Melissa Satchel Handbag Fit a Laptop?

There is enough space for a 13″ Macbook or a Dell XPS 13 along with your wallet, sunglasses, keys, smartphone, and a small cosmetics case. The front face profile dimensions of the handbag are 14.5″ x 9″; compare this to the dimensions of the Macbook Pro 13 which are 13″ x 8.4″. There is easily enough space for the smaller footprint laptops.


The quality of leather is top notch and gives the bag some heft and sturdyness with the bag itself weighing 2lbs 6oz. Capable as a laptop bag (13″ Macbook) but versatile in it’s own right, the Melissa Satchel handbag has both beauty and functionality for carrying your personal items.

Made from beautiful pull up leather with our signature Melissa buttons, this satchel is the perfect companion to everyone’s favorite boot the Melissa. That kind of carryall that gets even better with age. Using the same techniques and handcrafted care we’ve prided ourselves on since 1863, each Melissa is given the attention you’ve come to expect from Frye.
