Knomo unveils new small leathergoods offer with local and eco focus
Inc Retail’s premium leather accessories brand Knomo London has launched a new line of small leathergoods that make the most of the “think local” and eco trends that are high on consumers’ agendas in 2022.
The company has partnered with an unnamed family-run business to create a collection of cardholders and wallets inspired by the historic New Forest.
The link-up will see it using only locally sourced, full-grain vegetable-tanned leather to “celebrate” the New Forest “and relay a feeling of nature to every Knomo London customer”.
The company is also emphasising the durability of the new pieces, another key trend that’s the exact opposite of the throwaway fashion culture that dominated the sector earlier this century.
It said the limited collection of wallets and holders “ages just as the Forest itself does and only gets more beautiful as time goes on”.
The New Forest Collection uses “a timeless design and Knomo London’s signature personal touches that evoke a sense of luxury for every user”, we’re told.
It focuses on three colours of leather (white, black, and brown) and comes as a slim wallet, folded cardholder, cardholder and ID card holder with lanyard.
Prices start at £79 with the items launching as of now. The company also said the range will evolve on a seasonal basis, and personalisation options will be available soon.
Head designer Eve Rawson said: “We’re proud to partner with a British based business to produce products that are sourced locally and environmentally-friendly due to the lower carbon footprint of having them made in the UK. The vegetable tan leather used in this unique collection is less harmful to the environment; this also means that the leather is exceptionally durable and ages well.”
