A lovely small independent business in Bristol
I know you're here because you care about who you buy from so to help make the decision a little bit easier for you, here are 11 reasons why you should choose to shop with me.
lOOKING AFTER THE PLANET
All about Sustainability
The reclaimed leather I use to make my bags is made from genuine leather offcuts bound for landfill. It's produced by an amazing company in Peterborough who are paving the way for sustainable leather alternatives.
I fund the planting of one tree for every order you make with my business. These trees will help restore diverse forest ecosystems, protect multiple critically endangered species, reduce poverty and mitigate climate change.
Handmade in the UK
I proudly design and handcraft every product in my studio in Bristol, UK. I believe that British-made stands for quality craftsmanship and that in supporting locally made goods you are helping to preserve the future of british manufacturing and nurturing home-grown talent.
“As consumers, we have so much power to change the world by just being careful in what we buy.”
- Emma Watson
stand out from the crowd
Combining recycled leather and beautiful fabric is my signature style and what sets me apart from other brands. All of my products are original and unique to me so you won't find anything similar elsewhere.
Keeping it minimal
My small batch and made-to-order production means that waste is minimised and I never make more than I need. Any waste materials left over are donated to local community projects or used to make limited edition and one-off designs.
HIGH QUALITY COMES AS STANDARD
I'm a Perfectionist
Every bag, coin purse, make up bag and laptop case is individually handmade by me in my studio meaning the quality is kept to the highest level possible. Nothing is ever sent out that doesn't meet my high standards.
“The first step to slow fashion is asking why before you buy.”
– Elizabeth Joy
Caring about you
I want to give my customers the best experience possible. I like to work closely with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. Nothing is ever too much trouble when it comes to making you happy.
Unlike many other brands I give you the chance to own something truly one-of-a-kind with my customisation service. Choose your own fabric, get a custom size or see your own design come to life.
Plastic isn't my thing
Single-use plastics are a big no no in my book so I package your order in cardboard boxes or kraft paper envelopes. Sometimes I also re-use packaging I have received from my own material deliveries. I always encourage customers to recycle or reuse their packaging if possible.
“Demand quality, not just in the products you buy, but in the life of the person who made it.”
– Orsola de Castro
shop small, shop local
Small Indie Business
Every time you buy from a small business you support the local community and put money back into the economy. Buying less but higher quality means better for the planet plus you're also buying a little piece of the passion, heart and imagination that went into making it.
good for the environment
Low carbon footprint
Being a small business means I can keep my carbon footprint low. I always aim to buy my materials from local or UK suppliers, never buying more than I need. I keep things digital, reducing unnecessary paper wastage and I always recycle or reuse materials whenever possible.
