Well hello there!
Hi, I am Nikki!
I founded LavenderLime with my lovely husband John in 2020 right at the beginning of the pandemic. With a history in art, design and fashion, I started making jewellery as a hobby originally but this has flourished into a full time career when I founded ikkara with a few friends in 2007. Ikkara was a fashion brand for many years in Surrey.
Our goal is to supply excellent quality fashion to busy mums at a great price. I am a mother of four grown up children and understand that there is a real lack of quality companies that do this in the United Kingdom.
LavenderLime designs and sources our range of beautiful accessories, scarves, bags and clothing from a wide variety of suppliers and artisans and will look to favour locally supplied products as much as possible. Where possible we deliver locally (sometimes same day but always quickly) and all our packaging in recyclable.
Our Italian leather handbags in particular (including shoulder bags, leather handbags, messenger bags, purses and tote bags) are designed along classic or innovative trendy styles, made using the best quality leather and materials.
When sourcing, our intimate knowledge of the market allows us to find, select and get in touch with a good selection of quality handbag companies. This is our best tool to find an unprecedented source of quality handbags at the best wholesale prices, purchased direct from the manufacturers.
In particular we source a great deal of our clothing from Italy including our best selling asymmetric jumper range. These draped asymmetric are incredibly popular this year!
We also have a wide selection of items and not all are on the website. If you have seen us and cannot find what you are looking for, please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you. The jewellery is individually handmade to order and Nikki is very happy to commission something different for a special occasion.
LavenderLime can also host parties in your own home - a lovely way of getting your friends together for a fun evening or coffee morning and earning commission to spend on our collection or give towards your chosen charity.
If you would like to enquire about any of these or even to become an agent of LavenderLime, please email us here.
Alternatively you can email us direct on Nikki@LavenderLime.co.uk.
