I wrote about BD & E's Gable bag here when I thought it was the perfect satchel, but since then I've noticed a number of what I call "wrapped handle" bags popping up in various places.  Cynthia Rowley's latest collection features a number of bags with the style and even Chloe has produced one.  I'm not fond of chains or other hardware as straps on bags, so I like the look a lot.  To me the wrapped handle adds interest and is functional as well as the padding cushions the hand and makes the bag easier to carry.
