Anna P

Anna P loves designing and making beautiful hand crafted accessories. Her affair with fashion started in Rome when Anna’s grandmother handed her fabric and pins to create her own dolls clothes.

After having studied and gained a whole lot of experience in construction and pattern cutting of leather at a renowned studio, she felt the need to do her own thing, a need to create beautiful Eco Luxury handbags and headbands with a minimal carbon footprint. Many of these bays and headbands are one-off pieces made by Anna P herself!

Po-Zu & Shoe Fleur

 Po-Zu, the eco shoe brand has crafted the ingenious floral design fantasies of the award winning New York based artist Michel Tcherevkoff into high fashion and wearable art!

Po-Zu has kept their sustainable standards by using a glueless construction for this collection; it’s called a Stitch-and-Turn, by which the upper is stitched to the sole and turned inside-out. The ability of inverting the shoe also makes it incredible soft, flexible, and ultimately very comfortable.

The uppers are mostly made from printed vegetable tanned leathers, and the soles from natural latex, while Po-Zu’s renowned coconut foot-mattress has been slim-lined and made removable to fit with the elegant look of the shoes.

Designed for the woman who appreciates fine art as much as she values comfort, The Shoe Fleur Collection – indulges your wildest footwear fantasies without sacrificing your sole.

Hatastic!

Hatastic! was founded in March 2009 by Chloë Haywood is an eclectic range of unique handmade hats and headpieces inspired and made from the gorgeous vintage by the bits ‘n’ bobs sourced from remnant boxes and junk shops.

Chloë love of vintage fabrics, and ‘all things glittery’, is something she has always had an interest in and never grown out of since she was 16. Her desire to rejuvenate and transform the old, unused and unloved, into something strangely beautiful is essentially the ethic of Hatastic! Nowadays, this would fashionably be called ‘upcycling’
