Inspired by intrepid explorers across the centuries, STOW is an evolving collection of unique luxury travel accessories. Crafted from the highest quality buttersoft leather delicately moulded pieces are intricate but compact, carefully envisaged to answer both the practical and style needs of the modern traveller.
Launched in 2013, STOW is a labour of love for founder Carol Lovell, the direct outcome of her own attempts to find the perfect travel accessory during a globetrotting career in travel recruitment. Lovell has coined the phrase Wander-Luxe to describe her creations in which traditional notions of opulence and modern sensibilities are beautifully fused.
Each piece is handmade by master craftsman in the Spanish pueblo blanco of Ubrique, one of Europe’s leading centres in the production of luxury leather accessories. Colours are vibrant and contemporary, with bold contrasting Italian goat’s suede linings, gold hardware and STOW’s signature orange zip pull.
All pieces contain a tiny leather ‘stowaway’ envelope for keepsakes and mementoes.
Designs have a distinctly heritage feel and are named after the fearless 19th to 21st century explorers that have influenced them.
