As non-essential shops continue to reopen around the UK, I had the opportunity to visit The Cambridge Satchel Company this week to take a look at their new collections and range of leather notebooks.
Made in the UK, the Cambridge Satchel Company notebooks are 100% leather with lined pages, available in a number of different colours. The new Bluebell Matte A5 notebook (which was kindly gifted) is absolutely gorgeous. The leather is really soft and embossing options range from logos (I went for the bike logo obvs) to lettering for personalising it with your initials.
It was great to be able to browse the new satchel collections in the Cambridge store which is all safely set up for Covid with sanitiser stations and limited customer numbers. The team are always so happy to chat whilst I collate my mental shopping list to work out which colours I want to add to my personal collection.
The new Chilli Jam satchel colours caught my eye, especially combined with the blue which is named Midnight Picnic. Orange and Blue are a perfect match in my eyes.
Another winner in the Picnic Collection is the Lemon Curd Daisy Bag and I adore the Rambling Rose pink satchels with gold hardware.
Now that travel is opening up around the world, I also had a look at the travel accessories including the leather passport covers. It actually reminded me to renew my passport so I can hopefully take a few trips next year. As always, Amsterdam is on my list as well as visiting a friend in Cyprus for some sunshine.
The classic satchel colours are always available too – the red satchel was my first ever one when the brand began so it’s great to see it on display.
Now I need to get over the first page fear of starting a new notebook for the Bluebell Matte beauty. I might use it in a few months as a 2021 journal….it feels like we need a fresh start on the year in so many ways!
I hope you have enjoyed a look at the new collections and if you get a chance do pop into the Cambridge store as I promise the satchel colours are even better in person.
If you’re not able to visit, the full collections are available online and they offer 10% off if you sign up to the newsletter.
