Hello to all our new readers and welcome to Loxley England Limited. We thought we should introduce ourselves properly and tell you a bit about our company, who we are and what we’re up to.
We’re James and Tess Andrews. We’re siblings and together we own Loxley England Limited, a luxury British brand offering leather goods of the highest quality at a fair price.
We love heritage and classic products, but we also understand that when it comes to bags and small leather goods, practicality is of the utmost importance. We have sought to retain a timeless aesthetic but with a strong nod to functionality and colour that represents how we live our lives today. Our first collection of bags is beautifully lined with Liberty Art Fabrics, which have represented the height of luxury in British textiles since 1875. We like clean lines, simplicity and functionality and hope we can bring you all three in our luggage collection.
Our first collection is currently in production and will be launched later this year. We’ll be giving you a peek behind the scenes at Loxley on our blog, as well as sharing trends, fashion and style tips.
Tess Andrews, Director and Co-Founder
Tess focuses on the creative side of the business. She oversees the look and feel of the products and manages everything to do with the Loxley brand. She has always had an interest in fashion, and learnt to sew at a young age. While at university, she ran a market stall in Camden, London, selling garments she had made, and honed her skills at college on a pattern cutting and design course. She made the move from management consulting into her current role at Loxley in early 2014.
James Andrews, Director and Co-Founder
James oversees the finances and the day-to-day business operations. He’s had a varied career that has taken him from one end of the construction business as a hands-on bricklayer to the other end of the spectrum controlling the finances of a high profile urban housing development in central London. Now he’s at Loxley, he’s able to use everything he has learnt to launch our business and bring you the beautiful bags you’ll see in our first collection.
