Our Founder and CEO Julie Deane is an ambassador for QEST so this collection has particular significance to The Cambridge Satchel Company team. We strongly believe in supporting British craftsmanship and are proud to support such an iconic charity. This is the second collection we have created for QEST, this time working with our latest styles, including The Emily and The Melody and introducing our grain finish. Celebrate this partnership with a 100% leather bag from our limited edition collection, crafted in our very own factory here in the UK. A 20% donation from every QEST sale is given to QEST.
The five-piece collection features some of our best-selling styles in rich oxblood and navy with a grain finish, with each one proudly carrying the iconic QEST logo in gold foil.
"We are committed to supporting and preserving British craftsmanship. Despite pressures to manufacture overseas, we continue to produce our traditionally British bags here in the UK, at our factory in Leicestershire and by other manufacturers we’ve worked with since the beginning. QEST plays an important role in preserving important skills and we are honored to be able to support them."

At The Cambridge Satchel Company, we love to celebrate craftsmanship. We are proud of the fact that all of our bags are handmade in the UK, so when England’s oldest embroidery house Hand & Lock asked us to join them with their 250th anniversary celebration: ‘The Embellished Handbag: A Celebration of 250 years of Fashion and Embroidery’, we jumped at the chance.
