LHR: Hold Tight

Clearly YYZ and I have been preoccupied of late. YYZ has been very busy creating loveliness as she has always done, but now she’s sharing it with the world over at her other blog.

I have also been preoccupied as I started a fantastic new woolly (and cotton too) adventure at WOOL AND THE GANG. I don’t think I have ever mentioned where I worked before on this blog but given the relevance of my new gig, I thought it made sense.

Today’s post is all about WOOL AND THE GANG. We recently launched this cool collaboration with knitters in Britain. They’re all cool, hip, stylish and amazing knitters. Our designers designed the bags and the knitters made and customised them in colours of their choice. Of course I bought one (and in case you are wondering, it was at full price), here is the one I bought. I LOVE IT!

But first, here is a shot of the personalised packaging. Nice touch eh?

As you can see below my maker was Hannah from Britain. You can browse the whole collection  as I noticed that Hannah’s clutch is sold out. I personally also love Emma’s Hold Tight Clutch which is not sold out.

My bag was #madeunique by Hannah in Britain.

Inside the box, I met my maker

Another super cool thing about this bag is the yarn.  WOOL AND THE GANG calls it Jersey Be Good yarn and it is made from the off-cuts of fabric in  traditional fashion production. Think the bits that usually fall on your sewing room floor that are destined for the rubbish. Not these, they were collected and cut in to strips and tied together to make this yarn. So, one for the environment and looking good. YAY!

Now here’s a few outfits with my clutch. It’s been hot, so loads of shorts were worn.
