Honey & Toast was born after 15 years spent designing and developing accessories for the likes of Paul Smith, Alice Temperley and Mary Katrantzou; a range of leather bags and accessories designed to meet the high expectations of both children and parents, and of course be great fun to wear, use, grow up with and even hand down.
Print and colour are very important to us at Honey & Toast. We especially love that our prints are unisex – something we think might be missing out there right now.
All of the bag styles are available in printed leathers as well as bold solid colour blocked combinations. Our print designs are inspired by our most favourite adventures such as the monsters and rockets in our Space print. Our Garden print tells the story of happy times pottering about in the back yard. The leopard is well.. leopard – and very cool too.
We plan to add new prints, colours and shapes as often as we can. There is a Monochrome & Nude range being in the pipeline right now .. Also we have had lots of requests for grown up sizes – so watch this space…
The bags follow a traditional aesthetic with regard to materials and styling, and are made in a factory in Somerset that specialises in these traditional manufacturing techniques.
Each piece begins life by being hand cut from a leather skin, is then stitched, hand stamped with our logo, the solid brass hardware and rivets applied, and finally is packaged into a Honey & Toast dustbag.
We offer a really special bespoke service for our bags – you can have your child’s favourite doodle/handwriting/initials stamped onto the pieces to make them extra special. Check out the website for some photos of what we have done.
We hit the publish button on www.honeyandtoast.co.uk in October 2016. So its still early days – and every day we are learning something new , but loving this journey, and can’t wait to see more of the little people in your lives running around wearing the bags!
