Leonardo and the Hot Chocolate

When I was in London a couple of years ago I wanted a hot chocolate fix from 'caffe NERO', so I started walking - those of you who know me, know that I can walk for hours in the streets mesmerised by my surroundings.

Since the beginning of time there have been great…

This sturdy, vintage inspired piece of luggage would make any trip a stylish travel experience. Each piece is entirely hand-made using Vulcan fibre. What makes me truly appreciate these suitcases, is that they continue to be made in the same way since their invention in 1850. The original Victorian machinery is used to this day.…
