SS18 photoshoot on location at Calala Island

Last summer we were lucky enough to experience the beauty of Calala Island. A tiny idyllic private island in the Caribbean. It was an adventurous experience, an 8 seater plane journey from the capital of Nicargua Managua to Bluefields on the east coast. From there a two hour exhilirating speedboat ride through the mangroves before reaching one of the most special places on earth.

The Telegraph review gave it a 9/10 and that is no surprise.

Here we share some of the beautiful pictures of our Lou Lou Pouch mini bucket bag.

MATERIALS

Our handbags are made using leather both inside and out. We use nappa leather on the outside and the handbags are lined with an ecofriendly (using no harmful chemicals or dyes) natural pigskin leather in the inside. This helps to make our bags incredibly soft and luxurious but also durable and longlasting.

For our signature feature that we have become known for we use genuine Springbok hair-on-hide leather. The ethical source of the materials is very important to us. Springbok are classified as non-cites (which means there is no threat to the survival of the species) and the animals live freely in abundance in South Africa. The sustainability of the species is carefully managed and the population is culled to keep the ecosystem in balance. The local food industry benefits from this and the by-products are also utilised in decorative ways in interiors, furniture and fashion.

All our leathers are a by-product of the food-industry.

We use only high quality YKK zips and silver-coloured metal chains, studs and handbag hardware.

All our handbags are offered with a white cotton dustbag to keep them clean.
