Angel Jackson was set up in 2005 by sisters Katie and Millie Smith. They have been short listed for BFC’s Vogue Fashion Fund and won Topshop’s New Designer of the Year Award!
All Angel Jackson products are produced in their own fairtrade workshops and made from ethically sourced material. Katie is the designer, based in Bristol, with two children and Millie has 3 children, she had her third in Bali and she calls her Ruby Star! Millie oversees the production in Bali, where they set up their fairtrade workshops. They have a Bali fund that helps 2 charities: street kids and the mother baby fund. Angel Jackson promotes fair pay and contribute to the health care and education of their workers, all of whom have specific creative skills.
I love this snakeskin bag! Every season, Angel Jackson creates a few bags using the by-products of the food industry. (I never realized that snake skin was a by-product, or that snake could be food!) This bag is very tactile and soft. It’s all hand made and the studs are hand done too!
The ethical luxury bags are stocked in Selfridges, Harrods, Henri Bendel, Villa Moda, Galeries Lafayette as well as in a selection of lovely boutiques.
French Vogue recently requested quite a few items including the Seric! naturally many celebrities has been spotted with an Angel Jackson bag including Rachel Bilson, Gaga, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Sienna and Rihanna. I’m sure we’re going to spot a few more bags at Brits and Elle style awards!
