The Cambridge Satchel Company was launched in 2008 by Julie Deane and her mother Freda Thomas — around the family’s kitchen table, no less. The brand’s handmade leather messenger-style bags are a favorite amongst the young and stylish, including everyone from Elle Fanning and Emma Stone to Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel. The Brit-based handbag band is also an advocate of preserving local manufacturing and employing resident craftsmen. In 2012, The Cambridge Satchel Company was presented with the distinguished Footwear & Accessories Design Team honor at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards.
