Given new life, the vintage inspired Bowls Bag is the latest and very stylish addition to The Cambridge Satchel Company’s collection.

When rootling around at an antiques fair, the clever peeps at The Cambridge Satchel Company, laid eyes on a vintage bowls bag, believed to date back to the 1930s. From that moment, they felt it needed to be brought back to life and given purpose. Tah dah, we have great pleasure in introducing you to the Bowls Bag.

What is a bowls bag?

Back in the day, a bowls bag was intended to carry two wooden bowls and who would have thought, it’s perfect for life today, with enough space for every day essentials. If you’re a fan of the iconic satchel that Julie Deane, founder, made a fashion item, then the Bowls Bag is also for you. It’s so wonderfully simple with a cylindrical shape and magnetic closures, which are cleverly disguised as traditional buckles. And have no fear, the Bowls Bag isn’t going to roll away any time soon, it has small feet to keep it upright. The shoulder strap gives you different ways to wear it, especially if you want to go hands free and wear as a cross body bag.

The fun begins

Are you ready for a summer of fun as The Cambridge Satchel Company certainly is. The colours of the Bowls Bag are going to fill you with joy: this is the bag you need and it will doubtless bring lots of comments from admirers. Available in classic shades and two colours that the company has never used before, a vibrant pink and summer sky blue. Made with Celtic grain leather and featuring the company’s iconic logo, with oodles of attention to detail.
