Here’s a little more about them…
Who are London Olivia?
London Olivia is a British-born brand creating eco-friendly changing bags, that are stylish enough to fit seamlessly into your own wardrobe. Packed with handy features and genius extras – power charger, insulated compartments to keep baby’s bottles warm, antimicrobial material for added hygiene – these changing bags make on-the-go life with your little one as easy as it’s going to get, while they’re aesthetically designed to appeal to a modern mum: think sophisticated, luxe and on-trend. Meaning you’ll want to keep using it as your own gorgeous accessory long after they’re out of nappies.
The story behind the brand:
London Olivia is one of those brands that was born to fill a gap. Founder and mum Rochelle Streater tried out various changing bags after daughter London was born, yet would always find ways to improve upon each bag. With experience working in baby products, Rochelle spotted a gap in the market for stylish, luxury changing bags, at affordable prices, that would make life simpler for parents. Crucially she also wanted to create something that could be used from newborn through to pre-school age and then beyond as a stylish handbag, workbag, rucksack or even gym bag. And so London Olivia was born. Their first ever design was the iconic Notting Hill Backpack – the epitome of hands-free, fuss-free, effort-free style - and the range has grown since into a capsule collection of three chic designs.
Crafted from vegan-friendly material and packaged in recycled packaging, being kind to the planet has been a consideration from start to finish in the making of these bags. Plus, for every bag sold, London Olivia will donate a portion of profits to Unicef, to help keep another child safe and healthy, with every £6 donated helping to provide life-saving rehydration salts to treat 15 children. From a longevity perspective London Olivia’s bags will see you through many years, meaning you can buy less and waste less.
