Lost Property Of London
Handmade in the British capital, Lost Property of London (LPOL) started out in 2009 using second-hand fabrics to create their first bags – namely Hessian coffee sacks from London’s extensive lineup of artisanal coffee shops and unassuming local cafes.
The brand has since grown into a remarkable company, utilising zero-waste production methods in their East London factory, and adding an array of minimalistic leather handbags to their line.
Each and every product is made in the city of London, fulfilling the founders’ desire to help support and revive local craft skills while keeping transportation and emissions to a minimum.
LPOL only uses quality natural materials and reclaimed fabric sourced locally in London, the UK and Europe. All material waste and off-cuts are retained and used to produce small goods, one-off gifts and artist collaborations.
With collections designed to transcend the latest trends and last for a lifetime, LPOL bags are an investment well worth making.
