|The Cambridge Satchel Company was founded by Julie Deane and her mother Freda in 2008 at their kitchen table in Cambridge. Having invested just £600 to get the idea off the ground, today we're excited to call ourselves a global brand, shipping to over 120 countries worldwide. We've come a long way but haven't forgotten who we are and what's important to us – our British heritage, British craftsmanship and making timeless, beautiful bags for our fans all over the world. Julie's vision was simple; to revive the traditional British leather satchel – an iconic bag that had all but disappeared. The first ever bag was a vintage brown satchel which was soon followed by an array of brighter, more unexpected shades. Our range has now expanded to backpacks, smaller cross body bags, totes, accessories and more! 2015 also saw the exciting launch of our first dedicated Men's Collection and Men' s Store in Covent Garden's Seven Dials.
