Meet the maker

Joshua Elleray

With a passion for sustainable design and a masters degree in Architecture, I utilised my knowledge of materials and machinery to create products that provide sustainable alternatives to your everyday fashion accessories. From a young age, I have been passionate about travelling and love to be by the sea. Noticing the amount of plastic waste being produced inspired me to live a Plastic Free Life wherever possible and eventually led me to create my products that could utilise the natural materials we are surrounded by rather than producing poly-plastics that do greater harm than good.

I've been designing and developing the products for 5 years alongside my University Degree utilising the workshops and machinery available to me. This has allowed me to create a whole range of products that are not only sustainable but premium quality. The design process is unique to the brand and unmatched by any other companies.
