You’ll only have to peoplewatch for two minutes on a busy high street to notice that small, mini and even ‘nano’ bags are here, and they’re here to stay for the foreseeable future! Simple, compact and easy to carry, it’s no wonder that right now, mini is mighty. If you’re looking for your new favourite little bag to take with you from day to night and from work to weekends, let us introduce you to The Cambridge Satchel Co. family…
The Mini One Buckle
The newest addition to our collections, this perfect little bag is the simplified satchel for those who just need to carry the essentials. Compact and fuss-free, it will fit any modern phone and features a traditional single buckle for both easy access and security. This bag is the one for those who want to feel light and carefree no matter where they are.
Perfect for fun festivals and carefree days outdoors, this heritage bag will be with you for many summers to come. Inspired by the Scottish Sporran (which is Gaelic for purse!), this eccentric little bag is just as practical and lightweight. Originally designed as an essential pocket to hold coins, food supplies and ammunition, our version retains its simplicity and holds everything you need for a day’s summer adventure: keys, phone, cardholder and more.
Made with the same care and precision as our standard sized Satchel, this smaller version features a handy top handle (actually qualifying it as a Batchel - but let's not get into that) as well as a slim, detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, making it the perfect day bag.
The Mini Sophie
We’re sure you’ll agree that this petite version of our most premium bag is just such a beauty! Our clever designers have taken the structured frame of The Sophie and recreated it on a smaller scale, so that little bag lovers can experience the luxury of our framed Calf Grain leather bags too. Small but mighty, the ingenious structure of the bag allows The Mini Sophie to open almost 180º, revealing a premium cotton twill lining and giving you full, unencumbered access to your belongings. Carry it by its comfortable top handle or slip it over your shoulder with its gorgeous shoulder strap for those easy-going days. Don’t forget to snap it shut and lock it with its very own little golden key when it’s not in use… although we’re certain that you’ll never want to put it down!
The Binocular Bag
While our Binocular Bag is inspired by an old-fashioned field binocular case, its modern makeover for the everyday wearer has increased its versatility. This is a timeless style with standout features such as the single magnetic fastening, disguised as a buckle, and a unique portrait shape to keep it standing proudly on its boxy base. Simple, clever and unisex, this nifty little bag can hold so much more than binoculars.
The Bowls Bag
Inspired by a bag discovered at an antiques fair, believed to date back to the 1930s, The Bowls Bag immediately stood out as an unforgettable design. Originally intended as a carrier for two wooden bowls, this bag is ideal for modern day life. We have replaced the traditional buckles with magnetic closures whilst maintaining the exact same look. To prevent the bag rolling we have added small feet and a detachable shoulder strap gives versatility and functionality. Once you see it you will instantly understand why we had to bring it back!
The Little One
The best things come in small packages, which is certainly true of The Little One. All the details of The Satchel are there, but, thanks to our incredibly skilled makers, just on a smaller scale. Small enough to stylishly accent any outfit but large enough to carry the essential items for a night out you'll be talking about for years to come.
The Mini Poppy
The perfect miniaturisation of our most popular bag, The Poppy, this mini version takes the chic shape and clever design of the original and distils it further into the perfect nighttime bag. Perfectly balanced by your side, the Mini Poppy's pushlock closure opens swiftly to reveal an interior spacious enough to carry the essential elements of an unforgettable night.
The Saddle Bag
The Saddle Bag is inspired by a traditional equestrian design; cross body bags don't come much classier than this. The perfect size for the weekend or for taking with you on your travels, the Saddle Bag features a nifty leather strap tab closure and an adjustable shoulder strap for the ultimate versatility. The vintage-inspired design paired with our beautiful colours makes for a winning combination.
This irresistible little bag is an essential part of your night out armoury. Perfectly petite enough to be held as a clutch for a very special occasion or worn effortlessly at your side with its detachable shoulder strap for an evening on the town. The bag closes with a timeless pushlock for a touch of retro glamour.
