I’m Paula, founder and designer here at Paula Kirkwood.

I’ve worked in fashion and textiles for the past twenty five years and have always placed craftsmanship and environmental ethos at the centre of my practice.

For ten of those years, a textile charity that turns clothing waste into funds and resources that reduce environmental impact.

I ran their in-house studio, creating clothing and accessory collections for both men and women from reclaimed fabrics and industry end of rolls. This position embedded a sustainable mindset into everything that I create.

And now…

I have the joy of creating functional and stylish utility goods for you!

All the pieces you’ll find on this site are individually designed and handcrafted in my workshop in Brighton, England.

I’ve created each design with the need for simple, stylish functionality for both men and women. My specialty is using luxurious Italian vegetable tanned leather and reclaimed military canvas. High quality and an eye for detail is present in each and every piece.

I always consider custom work and collaborations, so please do be in touch to discuss these further!
