About: The Cambridge Satchel Company was founded in 2008 by Julie Deane and her mother Freda Thomas in her Cambridge kitchen. Beginning as a humble idea to raise school fees for her children the company has since grown progressively since those early days.

Beginning with just 6 handmade satchels, in our famous Vintage Brown, interest exploded following coverage by celebrities, international fashion magazines and a collaboration with the fashion brand Comme des Garçons which would be the first of many collaborations including Vivienne Westwood and Melissa.

Dedicated to British manufacturing the company opened its own factory in Leicestershire, where we continue to produce our colourful bags today!

After the success of the first pop up store, the first store opened in Covent Garden, London in 2013 and we now have 6 stores within the UK.
