Day 9: Like Celine, but GREEN.
We've teamed up with The Better Brand Consultant to bring you a 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide. Over the next 12 days, we’ll be giving you considered and alternative options from within the LWL community. Each gift has been hand picked and you’ll be able to find something for everyone from the foodies to the fashionistas. And because we all love a bargain, look out for the special LWL offers and discounts which they’ve kindly offered.
Top of many wish lists this year will be a beautiful, timeless leather handbag and we’re a little bit in love with hot new label on the scene, LUXTRA.
Founded by LWL member Jessica Kruger, this chic new brand champions the heritage of the leather handbag with a more modern, thoughtful and sustainable approach to crafting luxury goods. Jessica says:
“I created LUXTRA because I wanted to buy beautiful, design-led leather goods from a brand with deep values. A brand I could trust. Many women I have spoken to similarly want the quality and style of a leather bag, but also want to feel confident that it has been made with as little environmental and social impact as possible. I have personally gone to great lengths to ensure each aspect of the brand, from sourcing to packaging - and everything in between - champions our sustainable luxury values."
LUXTRA's leather is hand worked in Italy in a tannery that uses state of the art processes to minimise any impact on human health and the surrounding environment. Further to this, Jessica champions a new leather alternative every season and showcases the versatility of emerging “skins” such as this season’s Nina in silver Pinatex.
