Satchel Bag Company
The inspiration for the beautifully-made satchels (our favourites are the fluoro shades) was a battered old satchel. When the two of them realised that no one really made satchels like that anymore, they spotted a gap in the market. Soon followed a mention in The Guardian gift guide and a spot on a Google Chrome advert. Their bags are now beloved by fashion editors, designers and celebrities.
The company was set up in 2008, and we wanted to catch up with Julie to find out what her advice is for budding entrepreneurs and how she handles her business and her home life.
