Louise O Leary, designer of Louloubelle Bags studied interior design before going on to study fashion design in Boston USA.
On return to Ireland in 2004, Louise started a small collection of silk, cotton and linen bags that were sold in Cows Lane Market, an eye for detail and classic craftsmanship set her apart and the bags were soon stocked in a number of stores both here and abroad.
As demand grew and orders increased handcrafting each bag was no longer viable and outsourcing manufacturing became the only option. Wanting to maintain quality and the limited edition ethos of the label Louise stepped away from the production and has spent the last 2 years developing the label to create designs to meet demand but so maintain its unique style and exclusivity.
All bags are now produced in an Italian atelier using traditional techniques from ethically sourced Tuscan leather and remain limited edition pieces with only 100 of each style made every season.
Louise is committed to ethical practice at all stages of production, while still creating beautiful covetable bags.
