Lazy Summer Days with Handmade Ethical Clothing from Lowie

I discovered Lowie when I shared a press day with them a couple of months ago. The brand was started by Bronwyn Lowenthal nine years ago and specialises in very cute, colourful dresses and knitted garments. Illustrated to perfection!

Lowie by Emma Jardine.

Lowie was set up by Bronwyn Lowenthal - born in the UK, site raised in Tanzania, with Jewish roots and a Welsh name. She was trained in marketing and went on to become brand manager for Ben Sherman before setting up Lowie nine years ago, which she started by importing Turkish made hats and socks to sell in Portobello Market. She quickly realised that there was a niche for brightly coloured handmade knitwear and found a supplier to produce larger quantities for her in Hong Kong.
