The witty Lattice Print combines modern Hong Kong icons such as mobile phones, lunch boxes, coffee cups or headphones against a background of traditional Chinese lattice windows.
The patterns come in two colours on a soft mocha background, with a choice of Nearly Black or Cream.
Hand printed by Karen in our Lamma Island studio on vegan-friendly faux suede. An added virtue of this material is it's complete stain-resistance, despite looking and feeling exactly like fine suede. This helps the bag cope beautifully with wine soaked parties, rain soaked hillsides and all manner of wild living!

About Designer: We're a mother-daughter design team,originally from England but currently living in the Far East in Hong Kong.
As a family we share a love for oceans and islands and every shade of blue. When Karen and Lauren were having lunch in Steephill Cove on the Isle of Wight, which was home, to celebrate the end of Karenâs MA in Print Making and her upcoming relocation to Hong Kong, we fantasized about how lovely it would be to bring all of these important elements in to one project. Six months later, Laurenâs job in fashion lifestyle marketing finished and the prospect of being our own bosses seemed too good to miss so we decided to go in to business together.
We decided to name our business Louella OdiÃ©, in honour of our grandmother, who also has a love of exotic travel and is obsessed by blue and white ceramics. Karen had been experimenting printing on fabric and leather, so printing on hand bags and silk was a logical next step.
Although we are both currently based in Hong Kong, our hearts are between islands and our products reflect our love of art and adventure. Louella OdiÃ© is for bold women who aren't afraid of colour, adventure, print and the alternate paths life can take you on.
As we were just starting out we launched with a small collection which we will be adding to as we go along. (Pssst - Second collection launches late August!) We hope that our customers will recognize our passion and love for our quirky little brand. K & L
