We’ve finally put the wheels in motion to get our bespoke Cambridge satchel service up and running. We’re working closely with a very talented leather crafter based in South Wales to create a line of very special satchels available in lots of stunning colours, three different sizes, and lots of bespoke detailing you can pick and choose yourself. The basic sizes come as standard with the following features:
Top handle, adjustable across the body strap, front pocket, traditional fastening metal buckles, and our YOUnique logo.
Additional embellishments include:
Larger depth, inside pockets, additional outside pockets, pen holders, business card holders, multicoloured leather and stitching, and anything else you can think of! If you can design it, we can make it!
SMALL SATCHEL from £90
Our small satchel comes as a standard size of 11″ Width x 9″ Height x 2″ Depth. It is ideal for carrying your everyday essentials – ours comfortably fits in our iPad, purse, and our lipstick – and the optional front pocket is ideal for a kindle or a cheeky chocolate bar! It’s great for cycling into town with your book to grab a coffee, or even on a chilled night out at your local, and the traditional metal fastening straps make it really secure. We’ve chosen the mustard yellow with stunning maroon contrasting straps, and we get comments on it all the time!

MEDIUM SATCHEL from £110
Our Medium satchels come as a standard 13″ Width x 11″ Height x 2″ Depth. Slightly more practical than the smaller size, these satchels are ideal for office and school. Snugly fitting A4 folders and pads, and great for tablet computers – we can also manufacture the satchels with handy pen and pass holders on the inside. This bigger style is great with both a top handle and an adjustable across the body strap, for easy carrying on rush hour public transport!

HOW TO ORDER
We have a range of ready made Cambridge satchels on our website, and on our Etsy page. Our Etsy page also has an option to order your bespoke satchel – simply select your size, choose your colour from the drop down box, and send us a note at checkout with the detailing you would or would not like. Alternatively, you can purchase the right size bag off our website, and drop us a note with your purchase about any DIY embellishments you would like. Finally, you can email us directly with your instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can arrange payment directly.
Please note, our bespoke service has a turnaround of approximately two weeks. This is because we want to make sure we get the ideal satchel for you! Once we have agreed on a design with you, we then select and order the leather from our suppliers in Northampton. This then gets delivered to our leather crafter, who spends a day or two creating and perfecting your design. It then gets sent back to us for quality checking, and finally delivered directly to your door free of charge!
