Lauren Holloway is a slow-fashion handbag and accessory brand established in 2013. Lauren specialises in making sustainable and responsibly made bags & accessories all carefully and lovingly handcrafted in her Bristol-based studio.
Characterised by bold, eye-catching fabrics and practical, stylish designs, Lauren’s small batch production means each piece is made with attention-to-detail and waste is kept to a minimum. Prioritising quality over quantity is important and each bag is made to be delicately durable, not disposable.
Respecting and giving back to the environment is at the very heart of all the business, this is why all the leather used is repurposed from offcuts that would otherwise have ended up in landfill and fabric scraps are donated to community projects. Every order placed also funds reforestation projects around the globe through their partnership with Bristol based charity TreeSisters.
Lauren is also facilitates a range of sewing workshops for beginner to intermediate level in Bristol and the South West where participants can learn the basics of using a domestic sewing machine, brush up on existing sewing skills or develop new techniques to improve their craft. You’ll leave the workshop with new-found knowledge and inspiration for future projects plus you’ll take home a beautiful handmade bag you can enjoy for years to come.
