We can’t speak highly enough of this tote – even if it is somewhat overpriced. Yes it is kind of sensible looking, but there is nothing we like more than clean lines and a bit of structure. The Tassel tote is beautifully put together and definitely an ‘investment’ handbag. The Cambridge Satchel Company, started in 2008 by Julie Dean and her mother Freda, is now a household name in the UK. Their story is a really cute one, and worth the read if you can spare the time. We put down some of their success down to the fact that have the magic combination of old world charm and classic celeb style.
The Tassel Tote is made in Britain, has a magnetic closure (a great addition to a tote we feel) and a double shoulder strap. It measures 11.5” (H) x 15.5″ (W) x 5″ (D) – so it’s big enough to fit quite a bit of your hoard in. You do need to pay for quality though. Like we said – it’s an ‘investment bag’, notwithstanding there are other leather totes in the market for significantly less. Buy one if you intend to have it for ages. FleshTone colours are Vintage Brown and beautifully rich ‘Damson’. Prices start at $335USD.
