The company was founded in 2008 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.
So inlove with these!! First found this in Tumblr and I could tell you that I got love-in-the-first-sight! 🙂 More especially when I visited the site and found the kinds of Satchels -they are soooo so nice. But the only problem is -the price. It’s too expensive and I’m hoping to find a cheaper one in Greenhills or in any Tiangge. Hehe I bet ya kno what kind of person I am. I always look for a cheaper price. But all hopes up…we don’t know! Someone might give me this as a gift!! ASSUMING.
