our Social initiative
Paradise Row is more than just a leather goods company, it’s a social initiative with roots that spread throughout the East London creative community. Whether it’s the locally employed graphic designer, photographer, or the leather workshop that was close to shutting its doors, every stage in the life of a Paradise Row item is saturated in our lively design-driven culture.
Through buying with us, you are not only supporting every link of the local trade chain, but also a brand that promotes the social and cultural constitutions which make up the local area of East London. The CORE Collection; The Pearly Kings & Queens, The London Buddhist Centre, The Repton Boys Boxing Club + Cordwainers College, now part of the world-renowned London College of Fashion.
As a part of telling the stories of the CORE collection, each bag has been hand-packed with an accompanying story card placed inside, which gives you the narrative and piece of local history behind each charm. Paradise Row is both a product of the rich and varied history of East London and a catalyst for its continuing regeneration.
