    The Poppy in Vermilion Celtic Grain

    Like happening upon the most beautiful waterfall on a countryside cycle, sometimes the most beautiful things are discovered on the way to another destination. In the long development process of The Doctor's Bag, we were inspired to create The Poppy - a genius little bag that has become one of our bestsellers. We've taken the functional ease of The Doctors Bag and the neat, well-groomed finish of our leather satchels and made a bag that is, quite simply, chic. The Poppy closes with a satisfying click thanks to its push lock closure, an added note of vintage glamour.

    Brilliant vermilion, a favourite for centuries - reminiscent of Renaissance paintings, illuminated manuscripts or indeed a bold Hollywood red lip. It’s a trusty wintery companion, but also a bright summer pop of colour; this shade is certainly not just for Christmas. 

    Made in England by the expert craftsmen and craftswomen of The Cambridge Satchel Company, this full leather bag sports nickel hardware and a timeless push lock closure.

    You can carry The Poppy by its reinforced leather top handle or wear it by your side or across your body by attaching the adjustable shoulder strap. We've embossed our name on the reverse and on its metalwork as a mark of quality and you can maintain its wonderful appearance for longer by protecting it from sunlight and scratches in its own dust bag.

    The Cambridge Satchel Co. was born from a passion for excellence. When Julie and her mum Freda started the company at their kitchen table in Cambridge, they had one goal – to make enough money to provide Julie’s children with an excellent education and a brighter future. 

    Julie Deane OBE is the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Library’s Business & IP Centre and will help inspire and guide users of the Business & IP Centre by sharing her own advice and business experiences, and will also be advising on how the Centre can develop and expand by raising the profile of its work across the UK.
