Sartorialee can announce a new collaboration between the British footwear brand, Cheaney and the British bag brand, Cherchbi.

The alliance includes a footwear range with a boot and shoe in two colour ways: burnished grey and walnut grain, featuring Cherchbi’s Herdwyck no.10 tweed. The shoes themselves are made by Cheaney in their Northamptonshire factory and are a beautiful rugged country brogue. Cheaney are also stocking the Cherchbi range in its London stores.

To celebrate the collaboration Cheaney & Cherchbi toured their 4 favourite pubs in London, documenting the collaboration pieces with renowned photographer Jonathan Daniel Pryce as they went. Hostelries included The Grafton in North London, Adam & Eve in East London, The Mayflower in South London and Paradise in West London.

Joseph Cheaney established the company in 1886, and in 1896, along withhis brother Arthur, they moved to the site which the factory occupies today. Recently Mr J. & W. Church have purchased the factory employing their wide knowledge of the shoe industry. 

Established by Adam Atkinson in 2007 the company began with a simple idea to make bags using the discarded wool of the ancient Herdwick breed.Cherchbi has evolved into a leather goods and accessories brand. Crafting modern designs in a robust, traditional quality, drawing inspirationfrom Britain’s creative, cultural and manufacturing heritage. Cherchbi's tweed and leather bags and accessories are entirely designedand made in Britain using the best natural raw materials including vegetable-tanned English saddle leather, their own Herdwyck No.10 wool tweed, brass Riri zips, cotton, linen and solid brass hardware.These materials are locally sourced to their specification and are natural and sustainable.
