Vaughan & Unwin was launched in London, UK, in 2019 by Stephanie Vaughan and Sarah Unwin, two frequent travellers who met while working in the film industry, and who wished to create bags that are a joy to use both when away and at home.
The Vaughan & Unwin collection has the founders' love for Turkey and its nature woven through its core. The brand's vision is to create beautiful yet minimalistic organic cotton bags for travel and everyday life, evolved from Sarah's upbringing on an organic farm and Stephanie's personal connection to Turkey.
"Having met my partner in Turkey, I have spent a lot of time there, where his family have introduced me to all the beautiful materials the country produces, including some of the finest cotton in the world" says Stephanie Vaughan, co-founder of Vaughan & Unwin. "Our partnership with TEMA ensures we give back to the country which allows us to make exceptional bags, by donating a sapling for each bag sold to create a Hope Forest"
Vaughan & Unwin creates clean contemporary designs that are sustainably and ethically made and feel amazing too. The bags' GOTS certification means the brand protects the environment as well as the welfare of the workers and their communities, throughout every stage of production.
The Vaughan & Unwin range includes customer favourites Florence Travel bags, either as a Botanical Set or Islands Set, as well as the Savannah Totes, in four different designs: Bloom, Droplets, Heartbeats and Sunrise.
"I grew up on an organic farm, so both sustainability and high ethical standards have always been important to me" says Sarah Unwin, co-founder of Vaughan & Unwin. "When founding Vaughan & Unwin it was essential that we created 100% organic bags to ensure the land is respected for future generations, and both the workers and their communities are protected."
