One rainy day in London, I was meeting up with a dear friend for coffee and a chat. It had been pouring outside and when my friend arrived, and approached the table, flustered and drenched, struggling with her umbrella, leaving a trail of puddles behind her. She shoved her umbrella in her raincoat pocket and exclaimed, “I wish I had something to put this in, because my pockets always fill up with water.” Sure enough, even putting it in her handbag would make everything wet. Knowing that I love to design accessories, she asked me to find her a solution. After a few months of testing different approaches, it was at the beginning of 2014 that we finally came up with a prototype, and thus The London Brolly Bag was born.
We saw much success with our initial designs, and in flooded numerous requests to come up with brolly bags suitably glamorous for special occasions. Our first collection was created! Beautiful, elegant materials with charming embellishments became a must-have for bridal parties and ladies attending evening events on rainy nights.
We then began designing our Fun & Floral range, where one can find some wonderfully elegant designs and instantly recognisable Liberty and Cath Kidston prints. Our range has now increased to showcase our Fun & Floral, Fabulous, Dapper and the Last Chance collections.
We source our fabrics from all over the world, and all of our bags are handmade in England.
Our bags are lined and locked so that any residual rainwater stays inside. Simply turn inside out to dry.
One Of A Kind
We often make our bags unique to each other through various embellishments. This means no two bags are alike!
Don’t be caught carrying your wet brolly in an old shopping bag again!
We hope you enjoy looking through our collections. Please contact us for further information. We would be delighted to hear from you.
