Founded in 2018, Lidia Russo Designs is a bespoke brand specialising in reclaimed textile bags, making the most of materials we already have at our fingertips. Three different styles, Tote, Postal and Backpack, each are designed to be reversible.
Founder, Lidia Russo, leads with a clear philosophy; to craft high quality, innovative but timeless, most importantly long lasting bags, through careful, well thought out production. As a small and independent brand in a vast industry, it is essential to start as we mean to go on, to be able to achieve ‘slow fashion’ the antithesis of the throw away, mass-produced culture of today. “In sourcing remnant textiles, I am keeping materials in use, contributing to a circular economy, to achieve environmental and societal benefits. Let us love and make use of what we have already”
Made to last, striving to be recognised for innovation, sustainability and quality, by sourcing reclaimed textiles and re-imagining them into her designs, the bags are not only handcrafted; they are bespoke, individual, limited editions. Each sets itself apart from another. Changeable qualities of design invites the wearer to use their creative energy, to turn their bag inside out to suit the different days ahead, through all looks of the day, year –not subject to a single season.
