L&L becomes H&H
Upmarket leather furniture and accessories retailer and supplier Leather & Lavender has rebranded.
The company has rebranded as Howat & Hutchinson following a period of rapid growth and increased demand from independent retailers and consumers looking for leather homeware, storage solutions, gifts and desk accessories.
The compnay started out as a hobby for then PR manager Sallyanne Hutchinson, who would sell luxury leather goods at Christmas fairs. Former BBC journalist Jo Howat, recognised the demand for such products and entered into a business relationship with her childhood friend. The partnership has taken the company from a hobby to a fully-fledged business and has continued to go from strength-to-strength since 2004.
‘Both Jo and myself are passionate about interiors, particularly homeware accessories, and we’ve worked hard to develop a portfolio of luxurious products, through Leather & Lavender, that are the perfect addition to any home or office environment. We recognised the need to offer consumers an elevated purchasing experience, so we decided to rebrand the company as a catalyst to drive the business forward over the coming months,’ says Hutchinson.
As part of the rebranding an ecommerce website has been introduced.
