About

Hi Kickstarter community! Thanks so much for checking out our page.

Florian London is a British brand specialising in creating luxury leather goods which make perfect gifts for you or a loved one.
 
Organisation and functionality became the main focus of our brand, after discovering that 89% of women could not find handbags that suited their lifestyle. The bags on offer were either trendy or functional, none was the perfect blend of the two. Equipped with our passion for design, we embarked on a mission to create truly luxurious leather handbags where 'great design met practicality'.

Our range of leather handbags has been carefully designed using traditional methods to ensure each bag is made with the due care and attention it deserves. The tanning process used in each leather bag is entirely natural, which ensures high quality and buttery-soft leather with character. 

The past year has been a great one for us, seeing our first collection come to life after so much work has been put into it, overcoming challenges, building relationships, establishing the brand in Europe, and making products that we’re truly proud of. 

Our 2013 collection has been designed with the modern woman in mind, whether it's your iPad, phone or laptop, down to the minor essentials such as pens, there is a compartment which suits your lifestyle. Our bag interiors contain a beautiful print of our take on “Alice in Wonderland”, which shows how deep a lady’s handbag goes. 

Some of the compartment to help organise you.
Some of the compartment to help organise you.

We understand that a handbag is an extension of a woman’s personality and with this knowledge, we are delighted to present our 2013 collection, a range of day and night bags always designed with the modern woman in mind.


For your pledge, you'll be rewarded with a selection from the upcoming  collection at a discounted price.

Here on Kickstarter, it's all or nothing! If we don't meet our pledge goal, our project will not get funded so we have designed a variety of rewards for our pledgers as we are grateful for whatever amount you can pledge. We cannot thank you enough in advance for your support. If you find that you are not in the position to pledge, please hit the "like" or "share" button to pass our project along to your friends who you think might be interested.

As excited as we are about our new collection, we still need your help, Kickstarter. Currently we only have samples of the handbags. With the money we raise we will be able to purchase the hardware, leather, and all that is required  for us to go into full production.

With your pledge: 

• You’ll help us to complete our Collection and help produce a variety of colours 

• We'll be able to expand our brand, making it available globally. 

• You’ll receive a stylish Florian London product at a discounted presale price! 

Shipping any product directly from London is prohibitively expensive. To better serve our American and international customers, we need to set up a fulfilment center in the United States. The money raised through this project will go towards the completion of our 2013 collection. Successfully funded, we’ll be able to finish our production run and ship in bulk to the U.S, and continue our Kickstarter backers’ rewards.

Thank you for choosing to make our project a reality! On the upper right hand side of our project page, there are several different pledge tiers and a green button to Back This Project

Match your pledge to your desired reward, and follow the instructions to become a project backer (you'll need a Kickstarter and Amazon account). Immediately following the conclusion of our successful campaign, we will request your shipping address and your bag/color preferences.

Risks and challenges

Fashion is an inherently difficult business, and the burdens to delivering a quality product in a timely manner are numerous. Designing, sourcing, manufacturing, exporting - all of these activities require sufficient knowledge and experience to overcome.

We are lucky to be in a position where we are well equipped to deal with the risks involved in such a project, as this is our second season. We have already dealt with the common problems and ironed out all the crooks and crannies that have plagued similar projects by producing our previous collection.

Our organizational structure, with management spread between the U.K and U.S.A, allows us to deal with sourcing or manufacturing problems directly, without the need of an intermediary.
