Hand-made Thursdays – Lost Property of London
Lost Property of London was founded in 2009 and immediately hit the right note with its coolly understated range of eco luxury accessories. Abandoned fabrics are collected and discerningly transformed into fashionable yet practical objects of desire by Katy Bell, who graduated from Central St Martins in 2006. Potentially polluting manufacturing processes are avoided at all costs and are replaced with handmade techniques and natural finishes which only serve to add to the unique styling. This Feathered Eco-clutch is upcycled luxury – made from fair trade coffee sack, soft grain leather and guinea fowl feather detail.
The Maltby Reversible Eco Tote is made from fair trade coffee sack with contrasting lining. Each one is entirely unique. Linings include floral or striped.
Vogue, Elle, FT and more are waxing lyrical about this new London brand – pick yours up from Young British Designers who ship everywhere.
