Back to our roots - Reuse Recycle
When first I started Charlotte Luisa all the bags were made from rescued and unloved fabrics. As the business grew I added to the collection with some new fabrics, particularly lovely faux leathers from Yarwood Leather and beautiful linings chosen to compliment the bags.
This month was supposed to be for product development, sourcing new fabrics and materials. Because of the current situation I've had to have a rethink. I will keep developing new products ready to be launched when I can. But for now, it's all about the fabric stash!
Before lockdown I had a final visit to the studio and filled the car with my (embarrassingly large) pile of fabrics, threads, zips and everything needed to make Charlotte Luisa bags.
Look out for old favourites, limited editions, rescued and donated fabrics. So for now, I'll be going back to basics.
