Portobello W11

26th May 2017


London has a unique atmosphere all of its own, but Portobello road is something else.

Just a short walk from the Ladbroke Grove tube station, Portobello market has been a staple of London since the 1800's (though it was arguably during the 1950's when it really became famous). Come Saturday, when all the stalls are out and the market is in full swing, Portobello becomes a riot of colour and activity. Visiting Portobello market is something of a treasure hunt, stretching to over half a mile long and featuring hundreds of eccentric stalls. Ranging from food to music to antiques and accompanied by street performers, Portobello market inevitably draws crowds - creating a unique and intoxicating atmosphere.

 



The colourful houses of Portobello road.
 

Named after the road and the street market of the same name, Portobello W11 flew onto our radar in 2015 with their collections of colourful leather accessories. You can see something of this vibrant Bohemian culture in each of their designs – from the bold colours and contrast linings to the gold-coloured detailing that completes each item. Crafted from genuine cowhide leather, their bags have a beautifully soft-to-the-touch feel with all the individual character that comes with natural leather. The interior of each bag is fully lined, and designed to be ideal for day-to-day use with enough pockets and pouches to keep hold of everything you need to hand.
