How are we sustainable?

Our collections are heavily inspired by nature, drawing inspiration from its striking colours and organic forms. We want to keep enjoying our natural environment and ensuring that future generations will enjoy it too. To do this, we need to protect it.     Did you know? The majority of our leather comes from offcuts and discontinued stock from the fashion industry. We carefully select each piece which goes into producing our products.

Samantha Warren Pop-Up Shop, London

Samantha Warren bespoke brand logo by Tom Foley

I designed my first logo with my brother when I started my brand 5 years ago. It has suited me very well until now, but I decided that I wanted a more meaningful logo which represented my design ethos and felt more relevant to my brand.   Old logo   I knew I wanted a logo which was classy, something that would stand the test of time, but also look different from other logos and didn't date too quickly. I wanted it to relate to my creative work and reflect my modern style, without being complicated. To look traditional but feel new, familiar yet unfamiliar. Who better to translate my contradictory brief than my typographic designer husband, Tom Foley.   ...
