“Zatchels are a relatively young, yet ambitious company drawing upon a wealth of experience in the manufacture of leather goods,” says Chris Evans, managing director, 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.”

Global Brands will produce Oxford product for the U.A.E., while existing Chinese licensee Sky Unicorn has extended its distribution into Russia and Eastern Europe.
