3 British Brands, Made In England
As a British brand, made in England we're always curious about other British designer brands and love to find out about new handbag designers, unique handcrafted jewellery and small sustainable brands.
Here we feature 3 brands from the UK that share our love of simple elegance, timeless design and versatility...
Little by Little
is a sustainable jewellery brand that takes design inspiration from ingredients. It was started by two friends, Annabel Cox and Georgina Fuggle - an ethical jewellery designer and food writer respectively. The idea was born over coffee, whilst they dreamt of ways they could do business whilst raising funds for charity.
Since its conception, there have been four collections: The Seville, The Mustard Seed, The Wedge and The Pip. All are made with sustainable gold, silver and glass, and each collection has its own distinct identity and quality. The founders always wanted to use their jewellery to empower others and are proud to work with the charity, Luminary Bakery. With each piece sold, they donate sufficient funds to enable a disadvantaged woman to train at the bakery for a day, in order to help build their career.
Virgo & Co is the home of luxury, sustainable cushions. The business was founded with a mission of proving that home textiles can not only look good, but do good too! Quality craftsmanship and timeless designs are at the heart of this brand, passionate about the cushions seamlessly fitting into your home and being loved for years to come.
Every fabric is carefully selected to ensure it is kind to both planet and people. The beautiful neutral and green pieces are all handcrafted in England by a team of experts. The cherry on the cake is that for every purchase Virgo & Co. donate 1% to support environmental projects, such as deforestation and preventing water pollution.
Russell Russell is an Isle of Man based label, designed by Sally Russell who aims to create unique, leather accessories for people of all ages, who are self-assured in their style choices. All her bags are handmade in England by skilled leatherworkers who specialise in using traditional techniques.
The first collection has been designed with a minimal aesthetic. The bags are soft and unstructured, with no base and no hardware, creating a simple and visually beautiful silhouette.
When you love something, you want to be able to use it all of the time and so the collection has been designed very much with versatility in mind. The bags can be worn in the crook of your elbow, over your shoulder, in your hand or folded into a clutch...perfect for any occasion, whether that's the office, a night out or the gym.
