Born in Kuwait and raised in Oman, Sophie developed her wanderlust at a young age. Her early exposure to a huge range of different cultures, traditional craft techniques and fabulous colours had a great influence on developing her unique ‘global-traveller’ style.

After spending a few years travelling the world teaching yoga, Sophie moved into styling and design and launched her own range of bags. She now lives and works in South America, taking influence for her fabulous hand-woven bag collection from the world around her. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, are great for a day at the beach and perfectly sum up the boho-luxe style that we adore!

In hot pink, turquoise and mustard, with splashes of fluro, Sophie’s bags are an explosion of colour. They look fabulous worn with a bikini on a tropical beach but are also great for brightening up a grey day at home! Better still, they are all fair trade. Sophie works directly with the WAYUU weavers in Colombia,  an indigenous community who spend up to 10 weeks carefully producing each piece. The range is stocked some of the world’s chicest shops including Browns, Matches, Fenwick, Le bon Marche and Barney’s. Beach bags normally retail for £100-£300. For more information visit Sophie's website.
