Oxford bags more licenses

Modern British accessories brand, Zatchels has signed a deal with Oxford to produce a range of leather bags and accessories. The Oxford brand showcase at BLE 2013, first introduced Zatchels to the University’s consumer licensing programme, which resulted in the 2 year deal brokered by licensing agency, Performance Brands.

Best known for the classic satchel, which they helped to reboot for the 21st century, Zatchels has quickly grown to become an essential ‘go-to’ company for on-trend leather bags and accessories that are available in a myriad of colours and finishes. The global Oxford deal and resulting ranges will benefit from Zatchels’ UK store openings and expanding international stockist network.

“Zatchels are a relatively young, yet ambitious company drawing upon a wealth of experience in the manufacture of leather goods,” commented Chris Evans, MD Oxford Limited. “Both the creative and production values of Zatchels products are very impressive and we look forward to the launch of the first Oxford range later this year.”
For the Back to School category, two more companies have signed with the University of Oxford to produce backpacks and school accessories. Global Brands will produce Oxford product for the UAE, while existing Chinese licensee, Sky Unicorn has extended its distribution into Russia and Eastern Europe.
