Stockist Spotlight - Surfgirl Beach Boutique

Posted on May 06, 2015 by Rebecca Barber


SurfGirl Magazine is one of our faves and now there's yet another reason to love them, they've just relaunched their online shop (SurfGirl Beach Boutique) and started stocking a selection of our bags.  

Here's what they've got to say about it :

"Beach Boutique, is SurfGirl’s online shop with a difference! We've carefully hand picked a treasure chest of cool things to give your home a beach house vibe from cushion covers to beach art. As well as everything you need for the perfect beach day from bags to bikinis (which stay on in the surf), we’ve got all the latest surf accessories for beginner to more advanced surfers."

We're delighted that SurfGirl have chosen some of our bags for their 'treasure chest' and wish them all the best with the newly re-launched shop.


You can view their full collection online at and we love it!

Celtic & Co launched their Spring Summer 2015 collection a couple of weeks ago, and we're delighted to say it features a number of our bags. 


The SS15 collection at Celtic & Co features laid-back designs for the next season - pieces that will truly inspire you, turn heads and cast thoughts to the warmer months ahead. Inspired by nature using a colour palette that reflects the Cornish coastal landscape and textures created from the finest, natural fibres and yarns. Offering key wardrobe pieces to see you from fresh spring days right through to hot holidays in the sun; including super cool beach dresses and must-have beach bags. Everything a stylish girl needs for the warmer months ahead.

As well as stocking the bags Celtic have taken some beautiful lifestyle and product shots to help in marketing and promoting them (see a couple of examples below).

Early feedback from Celtic & Co is that the bags are selling really well, and they've already had to re-stock a couple of items! You can view their full collection online at and we love it!

New Year New Collection.

Posted on January 06, 2015 by Owen Hayward

We're so pleased that it's finally 2015 because it means that we get to properly share our 2015 collection with you! Not just in pictures but in real life, you can hold it, wear it, even buy it! Some pieces are already in stock at our warehouse, some have already been sent out to stockists and the rest are now on a container ship somewhere between our workshop in Madagascar and our warehouse in Devon, England.

2014 was great year for us, we changed name, re-branded, added a new line and more than double our number of stockists. We've been working really hard both in the UK and Madagascar to make this years collection the best yet, and we're sure that, when you see it, you'll agree we've achieved that with some room to spare!

We're really looking forward to seeing many of you at Spring Fair in February and can't wait to show off the new collection!
