British leather and accessories brand Zatchels is launching a special collection this month to celebrate York Pride.
Made in the UK, the Zatchels Pride collection includes nine high quality leather bag styles featuring the iconic rainbow flag. Each one has been created by the label’s designers with support of LGBT+ bloggers and influencers.
Shoppers can choose from several styles including a City Backpack, Midi Satchel, Shopper and Sugarcube Plus crossbody. The brand will donate 20 per cent of sales from the collection to York Pride.
“We are incredibly proud to be partnering with Zatchels on their Pride range,” says Greg Stephenson, chair of York Pride. “It is always great establishing new relationships with companies who really value the importance of equality and diversity. York Pride exists because of volunteers, sponsors, and fundraising initiatives, so this money will really benefit the event. While there are numerous ways the money will be used, one of our current priorities is to enhance the A/V during the Parade given its mammoth growth over the past few years, and extra funding for this will be really helpful.”
Dean Clarke and Brian Brady, Zatchels directors, add: “The whole team here at our Zatchels factory are proud to support York Pride and the various worthwhile causes they in-turn support. We’ve had a great deal of fun producing the bags displaying the iconic colours of Pride. As a UK business and employer we feel it’s important to promote equality in all it’s forms and we believe these designs are a celebration of Just that. We look forward to showcasing these bags to the world.”
