Lost Little One was born with a simple concept in mind. How can I combine the things I love to do, with the things I have to do and maintain a lifestyle that I actually want to live? The idea was created while living life on the road, which sparked a passion to move and make.
I was deeply inspired by my environment and as a result I chose to design simply, allowing the story behind Lost Little One to be the real hero. I want to be able to take the audience on a journey with me, introducing them to this place that has managed to blow my mind in every possible way. The end result a naturally evolving label with authenticity behind every product.
I’m not a schooled designer but a self taught aspiring designer who wants nothing more than to create a product that we can all be proud of. Focusing on detail that I think is important. As cliche as it may sound, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. My mission is to create a label with core values that we all want to fall in love with, irrespective of whether you actually want or need a new leather bag.
I believe that in todays day and age its irresponsible to promote a new business that’s not ethically conscious. I never set out to be an ‘eco warrior’ and I still don’t aspire to be, however if you have two choices laid out in front of you, it makes more sense to pick the one that’s best for the vast majority, right?
I love to travel, I find happiness in being stimulated by a place that is unfamiliar to me. The element of surprise is exhilarating and not knowing what any day in Morocco will entail just assures me that I am stimulated all the time.
Spending months at a time here, I choose to work one-on-one with a Moroccan leather artisan in his humble workshop lost deep inside the maze-like streets of the Medina. Together we overcome challenging language barriers and work side by side to combine my ideas and his talent to create quality handmade, vegetable tanned Moroccan leather bags.
Lost Little One is the perfect fusion of style and culture. A mix of Morocco and Melbourne. Priding our ethically handmade collection on minimalistic yet functional designs, coupled with amazing craftsmanship.
Moulding two worlds into one and creating something special.
