The Cambridge Satchel Co. opens Covent Garden pop-up
London’s Covent Garden has welcomed its latest pop-up with the launch of The Cambridge Satchel Co., the brand that pioneered the revival of the satchel.
The Cambridge Satchel Co. pays homage to its roots with the new pop-up, opening in the same location it opened its first store in 2013.
Today, the brand has a brick-and-mortar presence in Cambridge and Edinburgh and is available for shipping to over 150 countries online. All of its leather products are handcrafted by a team of skilled craftspeople in a Leicester-based workshop.
Located within the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden’s shopping spots and eateries, the new store opens at the start of a busy festive season.
Customers will find The Cambridge Satchel Co.’s classic styles in core and seasonal colours as well as latest handbag styles such as The Isla and The Mini One Buckle. The pop-up will also stock the brand’s premium Cambridge Collection, spotlighting The Doctor’s Bag and The Sophie.
This December, it will be debuting its brand-new Matilda collaboration, featuring a selection of brightly-coloured satchels embossed with classic Quentin Blake illustrations, supporting the release of the much-anticipated Matilda The Musical film.
The pop-up will be open for three months, during the festive period, at Royal Opera House 7, North Piazza Arcade, London, WC2E 8HD.
Julie Deane, Founder of The Cambridge Satchel Co., left the business earlier this year following its acquisition by French textile giant Chargeurs.
