There are so many reasons to love The Jacksons. Their boutique is a little gem, situated in the heart of London’s Notting Hill; a haven of all things bright and beautiful, from clothes from independent labels, to gifts and homewares, all carefully curated with a strong sense of sustainability.
The ethical values behind the brand run deep. Their range of beautiful woven jute bags, placemats and beaded purses are all hand-crafted by skilled workers in south-west Bangladesh. The joyful designs are both colourful and humorous; statement pieces that can be purchased with the confidence that your acquisition will have a direct, positive impact on the teams of women that created each piece.
The Jacksons support of these groups of female artisans has led to the growth of the workforce from less than 100, to over 1000, in an area where few job opportunities are open to them. The impact of the business in Bangladesh is far-reaching, with a mission to further empower these women with independence and status.
Our favourite pieces include their statement ‘words’ bags, which come in a range of English, French and Italian words, including ‘There is no planet B‘ and ‘Rose all day‘, or simply ‘Wow!‘, as well as the colourful pineapple and octopus tablemats, which would make a perfect addition to any summer table-setting, not to mention a real-talking point.
Desirable pieces that do rather a lot of good. What’s not to love?
