'Handmade in East London, Paradise Row's low carbon footprint designs pay homage to local culture featuring subtle embellishments including pearls - for the pearly kings and queens - and intricately carved boxing gloves in a nod to Repton Boxing Club. Their current Empathy Collection, constructed with gold plated fittings and hardware, channels the philosophical views of Love, Sorrow, Awe, Hope and Joy.'

The Times described our Core Collection bags as 'One classic saddlebag style in five colours, each tweaked by way of the fastening, which - be it a metalllic silkweaver's bobbin, boxer's glove or ship's wheel - references the history of the brand's East End home.'

'Fast becoming a favourite with the London street-style set are Paradise Row's sweet and kooky 'Empathy' bags, which feature facial expressions embellished across them. The area was once renowned for its thriving textile industry, but now has only a handful of leather workshops left. This inspired the founders to revive the spirit of the area with their new company, which is already making waves across the capital.'

'Living in east London and having seen the decline of the leather and textile industry, I wanted to create a brand with a social purpose that would celebrate British craftsmanship in order to preserve it. All our leather goods, and in particular our once-a-year handbag collection, make the ideal sustainable gift. Our handbags are a piece forever, they are timeless. And each purchase makes a social impact by supporting a creative community working just a few miles from our studios.'
