I'm particularly smitten with this photo as seen on The Cambridge Satchel Company Facebook. Julie of Cambridge Satchel Company has to be the sweetest woman ever. The brand is a testament to classic design and beautiful craftsmanship. Truly one of a kind and the genuine original satchel. So beautiful!
The neon Cambridge Satchel bags have been in astounding demand this season. Almost every blogger is toting one around, and if you're not, well then you should be. Julie Deane created the Cambridge Satchel company with her mother, Freda Thomas. I spoke to Julie, over the phone, this morning and she is a complete doll. One of the most sincere and genuine individuals. Yes, I could tell that by speaking to her for just ten minutes. Julie's story of why she created the bags is my favorite part: she created the bags as a means of income to pay for school for her children. Now that is an awesome mom! I dabbled around the internet to find out more about Miss Deane, and check this out, "...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." Julie seems to be involved in every aspect of the company. She is the voice on twitter, the woman that took time out of her day to give me a call and the one typing you a sincere e-mail. She is so modest about her success, in a...I started the business this way and I just can't believe this is all happening,sort of way.
I would also like to politely note that the Cambridge Satchel Co. is the originator of this trend.Please make sure you are not buying a knockoff or are taking advantage of the Cambridge Satchel Company in any way.
All my love!
