Meet The Jambo Collection: statement bags and accessories so damn gorgeous, you'll be mooooved to buy the whole lot.
Here’s three timely reasons to introduce you to the latest newbie to Muddy’s Little Black Book, The Jambo Collection: firstly, I want one of everything from the entire collection of luxury cowhide bags, accessories and homewares (Mr Muddy, take note); second, it’s officially gift-buying season (Mr Muddy, take note again) and you’re bound to know of someone (friend, or pooch) who’s a fan of these gorgeous accessories; and third, this Devon-born brand, whilst available online will be popping up at a whole load of shopping events across the county – and beyond – in the lead up to Christmas. So we thought we’d get you acquainted and help you make a beeline straight for lovely owner Fiona, when you spot her amidst a sea of her beautiful cowhide.
So why are we such fans of The Jambo Collection? Well, I think the pictures kind of speak for themselves, especially those handbags, but really you need to fondle one of these beauties to get a true appreciation of how lovely they are.
The luxury cowhides are handpicked from Kenyan tanneries and expertly handcrafted into one-off pieces. Whether you’re in the market for a weekend bag, something more laptop-sized, or a splash of cowhide with a clutch, these timeless designs are made to last.
The brand’s Topsham-based founder Fiona Cummings has travelled Africa and combined her love of fashion and art to create the collection. Her ethos is to offer beautifully designed bespoke products ethically and we LOVE that. But do you know what we love even more? It’s all totally affordable, despite looking and feeling as though they belong on the pages of a high-end fashion spread (wait, I did tell you Tatler featured the bags, right?). Happily, the price tag attached to the products most definitely doesn’t match. Just remember that when you’re gift shopping and wish you could keep something for yourself….just saying.
Don’t go thinking the collection stops at bags, either. Have a little looksie online and you’ll see cushions for the home, pet accessories, clothes and jewellery, plus a selection of soft leather goods, from wash bags to pencil cases and keyrings. And the collection keeps growing! Go check it all out online, or at one of the events below. Meanwhile, would you look at that, so many cow puns and I didn’t stoop to using a single one. Even though I could totally have milked it. *Thud*.
