Our Story

What do we do?

We established our company in 2009 to bridge the gap between brands and manufactures, starting with design, sourcing, sample development, up to delivery. All steps are handled by our team in London, making it easier for customers to reach out when support is needed.

 
What do we make?
We have been producing all types of outerwear, bags and SLG, with a strong focus on real leather and sustainable non leather products. With the growing market need for more sustainable products, we develop garments in Chrome free leathers, plant based leathers and recycled materials.
 
Where do we produce?
We work with a carefully selected network of partners in India and China, building close relationships with the factories over the 12 years the company has been operating.
 
How do we access and monitor our factories?

With annual audits and regular visits, thus allowing us to closely monitor the quality and overall service that each customer receives. We require all of our factories to hold their own BSCI or Sedex membership. We support responsible leather manufacturing, all of the tanneries we work with are Leather Working Group accredited.

Our Partnerships

We are forever striving for exciting opportunities and in 2019 we joined forces with a jewellery studio. Working with the best factory in Jaipur, developing the most beautiful pieces in real and gold plated, sterling silver and an array of amazing materials, such as ráfia, resin, acetate, shells and many more. With sustainability being at the forefront of our minds, we are producing collections in recycled sterling silver and brass, for customers based in Europe. 

2021 brought on more exciting partnership in the way of home-ware and wovens.
