Belief in the principles of sustainability and taking inspiration from nature and culture Willow & Hive was established in 2018.
British designed and handmade leather goods, and gifts make life just that little bit more fabulous and an appreciation for understated aesthetic.
Willow and Hive is all about having a personal touch to the accessories you use every day. The founder, Anda Nason, has worked as a head designer for a leading high street fashion brand, when questioning the waste of the fashion industry she became interested in trying to use off cuts of leather. Based in the countryside on a working farm, whilst on maternity leave, Anda started to connect with the land and re-think about the way we treat the land, so being more sustainable being a key aim. Consequently all our products are designed with three essential ingredients natural, botanical and craft.
We wanted to create something special, long lasting and also a perfect affordable gift, that is something we use everyday combining simple design and function evolved into our leather accessories we produce today.
All the leather materials use to make Willow & Hive products are chosen responsibly with the core values of respect for nature, environmental impact and longevity of use are a byproduct of the food industry. Anda divides her time sourcing and handpicking the leather and making the accessories as well as looking after her two young children.
We feel strongly about sustainability and we meticulously source the vast majority of remnant leather to produce into our accessories. This makes each one of our Willow & Hive accessories unique as they are either one of a kind or produced in small batches.
The way the products are constructed are functional and simple and functional with clean minimal lines often with raw cut edges and bags left unlined.
We are a small business and offer a bespoke service that of each product. We hope you will love our products that have been carefully designed, handmade and produced in the UK.
Adding that personal touch having your name, nick name, initials, to destinations truly makes a stylish and unique addition for yourself or for a gift.
