The original and the best. Stylish leather goods lovingly designed and handmade in Great Britain.

The Cambridge Satchel Company was founded by Julie Deane and her mother, Freda Thomas in their Cambridgeshire home in 2008 with a budget of £600. 

The satchels, bags and small leather goods, are designed and lovingly handmade in the UK, becoming a cult among fashion bloggers and customers alike.

Following coverage by international fashion press, a Google Chrome commercial and brand collaborations with the Vivienne Westwood, satchel production increased from three homemade items a week to 3,000 in 2015. Today, The Cambridge Satchel Company is available in its own stores as well as on, and in over 100 partner stores around the world.

Oh! We do like to be beside the seaside…which is why we’re very excited about our store in Brighton. Perfectly sandwiched between our favourite independent shops and tearooms, it’s the ideal spot for getting lost and uncovering treasures.

Like all our stores, Brighton offers a bespoke embossing service where you can personalise your bags and accessories for a finishing touch that’s completely unique. Just a note, during busy periods, be sure to leave at least half an hour to allow for same day embossing.
