Craftsmanship

Our Craftsmanship

My love of style, and my need for function, that did not compromise quality or value, inspired me to design products that focus on the everyday issues that busy women face as they move through the work-life hustle. 

I wanted to ensure that my products did not compromise on quality or value. 

 

 

 

True Craftsmanship 

I wanted to ensure that my products did not compromise on quality or value. As I scaled my brand it was no longer feasible for me to produce every handbag and so began my hunt for the best craftsmen and women who would appreciate the values that I wanted to bring to my designs.

I wanted family-run businesses, rather than big, faceless factories, so I travelled round Europe and located small production factories in Istanbul, Manchester and Ubrique where the staff have over 100 years of combined experience in producing handbags and small leather goods. 




We Source from the best

We source high quality full-grain leather, the strongest and most durable type that improves with age. The zips, press studs, chains and tassel fasteners that make up our hardware are twice-dipped so the plating doesn't scratch. It’s also made from quality, weighty materials that translate into fine finished goods. The tannery we are partnered with has received a Gold LWG Award, which recognises good ethical practice in the processing of hides. 

Ethics

Our craftsmen and women have produced our products without exploitation, in a skilled process that takes around 20 hours. All factories care about their staff and ensure the best production practices and health and safety. The tannery we are partnered with are members of the Leather Working Group, made up of members developing an environmental stewardship protocol for the leather and manufacturing industry.
