Seventy Eight Percent Now at schu Rockwell!

Naomi, Ruby & I were on the lookout for another bag to add to schu's repertoire, and while walking around  the malls along Orchard, we discovered Seventy Eight Percent satchels. At first sight, we were blown away by the craftsmanship of the bags.

Based in Hongkong, Shai Levy, the owner, personally oversees production of these handmade bags , which are made from Japanese linen and Italian vegetable tanned leather. Read Style Salvage's in-depth interview with Shai HERE, so you can truly appreciate what Seventy Eight Percent is all about.

We decided to bring these beautiful satchels to Manila, which we feel will be much appreciated by those who understand design and value enduring quality . After all, these satchels were made to age gracefully and should last you a lifetime.


Price: Php 22,499
Dimensions: [37 cm x 24 cm x 6.5 cm ( 14.5” x 9.5” x 2.5” )]

• A briefcase for the creative urban nomad who wants to carry around just the day-to-day essentials.
• Made from Japanese waxed canvas and Italian top-quality vegetable-tanned leather.


Price: Php 16,399
Dimensions: [26 cm x 17 cm x 7.5 cm ( 10.2” x 6.7” x 2.9” )]

• The Zazie is our designer urban briefcase that can act as a stylish handbag.
• A grand solution when you just want to limit yourself to the small stuff.
• Made from Japanese waxed canvas and Italian top-quality vegetable-tanned leather

78% can be used as a briefcase, and comes with a detachable leather & cotton shoulder strap as well. My friend Kat managed to take a photo, it really looks better when you see the bag up close:

The design really is unique and distinctive, and because these are hand-crafted, really special. As 78% likes to say, "only a few will know". We'd like to think we're ahead of the curve, but well, Susie Bubble beat us to this when she featured Kapok, a shop in Hongkong, which has been selling 78% since last year.

Not too late for us though, because chocolate schu bar Rockwell  has these IN STORE NOW! See for yourself why we've gone stark, raving mad for these satchels. Go soon as there are limited pieces, to make it more special for the owner of each satchel ;)
