STOW launched 6 years ago from our founder’s home in North Hertfordshire. Our bold styles are now used by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Bobbi Brown, Victoria Pendleton CBE and Karren Brady CBE.
Carol Lovell founded STOW in 2013 with a mission to create THE global destination for luxurious, practical and life-lasting travel accessories – through her own search for the above she had discovered there lacked a spirited luxury specialist brand in this market sector.
Carol still has a leather writing case which she was given on her 18th birthday by her mother. Carol’s mother – now in her eighties – still uses her own leather writing case which was gifted to her on her own 18th birthday.
These two, indispensable, still beautiful, leather cases inspired our most popular lines, the Tech Case Collection. Like the writing cases, we believe our luxury leather goods are life-lasting heirlooms crafted for many years of adventures.
Our commitment to create durable, beautiful gifts is why our designs are hand made by expert artisans in the highest quality sustainable leather sourced in Europe. We live in an age when unnecessary waste and over-production is unacceptable and we have always produced small quantities at any one time with stock levels managed tightly.
Since the launch of the First Class Tech Case in 2015, it and other STOW designs have been regularly featured in global and UK press including British Vogue, US Vogue, The FT, The Times, The Telegraph, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Stylist and the Sunday Times Travel Magazine amongst others.
