taking inspiration from the weather, lauras designs have a brightly coloured, bold motif’d, practicality about them – like i would definitely use the duffel bag on some kind of wet weathered quest to the market or take the tea towels on an adventure weekend in a camper van. they would absolutely handle the beating & look fecking good doing it. hardy, useful & super cool.
bags, pouches, tea towels, laptop covers – her smaller batched textiles are screen-printed by hand in her glasgow studio and larger orders are produced by carefully hand selected british manufacturers who laura sources with quality & economy in mind. as she does also with her fabrics. which allows her products to be both ethical a n d affordable. win win win win.

happy shopping! – c x
