Where the Magic Happens
A Peek Inside Tovi Sorga's Studio...
We moved into a new studio last month & thought you might like a little tour to see where all Tovi's accessories are made. Here we are in the Stokes Croft area of Bristol, one of the most creative communities in the UK (more on that in a future blog).
Utility House are our landlords, and they're linked to the excellent Willis Newson team, who take it upon themselves to make hospitals and corporate environments more beautiful. Meet Jane Willis, Emily Malins, Polly Dolby and Karen Gray - having a Monday morning catch up.
Very soon we'll also have Big Fan design agency upstairs.
And in the basement we're lucky to have two very talented graphic designers as neighbours, James Gibb and Holly Maguire. They're off in Berlin at the moment so you can't see their smiley faces, but here's a peak through the window of their stylish studio.
We're all brand new to the building so everything's still spick and span - like our little kitchen...
...and the clean white meeting room below.
, by the way, hello. I've been working as Tovi's business partner for nearly a year and am here 3 days a week at the moment.)
And most importantly...
The man himself.
Tovi began making accessories about 8 years ago and designs and makes almost all of his beautiful pieces by hand.
Here's a snapshot...
of the processes involved in making a bumper crop of Folio iPhone cases
today. They've been selling like hotcakes. You can view our current women's phone cases here
In the messy corner...
We have the sumptuous, sweet-shop of pure suedes Tovi uses to line his accessories.
And finally, the future...
A snippet from our design wall where the next collection is brewing.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
We'd love you to leave us your thoughts in the box below.
Just a reminder also that there's FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING throughout November, and as Tovi gets exceptionally busy in December we advise ordering early for Christmas.
