"A Woman makes an outfit her own with accessories - Oscar de la Renta"
I’ll keep this short. I love an accessory. Enhance and breathe new life into an outfit with an accessory especially if you’re not buying anything new or you are a #proudoutfitrepeater
Be it sparkly socks (now there’s an idea), a bit of bling, a snazzy belt, makeup, a hair accessory, a new pair on bins - anything that brings a certain "je ne sais quoi"
I have been searching, sourcing and stalking leather goods suppliers to find just the right company to approach to ask to stock their exquisite product. The importance of local-ish, UK made, also in this case, family-owned, with a great back story here.
-"Still based in London, four lunatics rattle around our creaky Victorian workshop sweeping up pennies that fall out of the fuse box and watering the tomatoes on our shed roof. Being machine addicts, this place looks more like the set from an Evil Dead film than an artists studio." -
What's not to like? Their leather goods are remarkable with strong heritage values at their core. I personally think they are a great find. Gotta celebrate the small wins!
Also new on the website is...
Ju-Zo face coverings and Ginsburg hair scrunchies
Sticking to my zero-waste ethos, I have teamed up with a local Brighton crafter Ju-Zo, who makes use of all remnant pieces of fabric to create handmade functional accessories. Iconic 80's throwback-love it-hate-it's-made-a-comeback hair scrunchie and 3 layer cotton face coverings.

Last but not least, I have been tinkering around with tech to add Digital Gift Cards to my Instagram page @hanovastudio and on the website. If in doubt, give the gift of choosing I say!
