THE Cambridge Satchel

The Cambridge Satchel Company is a British company that produces satchels and other leather goods.

The company was founded in 2008, in Cambridge, England, by Julie Deane and her mother Freda Thomas as a way to pay private school fees for Deane's children. Her colourful handmade leather satchels are all based on an original Oxford and Cambridge satchel design and aimed at school children, but met unexpectedly high demand as a fashion accessory, and became, according to The Guardian, "a cult among twenty-something fashion bloggers".

Following coverage by international fashion magazines and a collaboration with the fashion brand Comme des Garçons, production of the satchels increased from three homemade items a week to 1,500 in 2011, and turnover increased from 15,000 to an estimated 8 million in 2011.

The company ultimately started their own Cambridge Satchel factory near Leicester.

... and today I got my first, can´t wait for it to arrive on the post! I went for quite a dramatic color, of course, fluoro pink. I know, pink has never been my color but c'mon, a Neon bag?! I had to! :) Liv
