Here in the studio + showroom, I am so proud to be welcoming more permanent artists and makers in residence, for all year round "shop small" elements. I adore curating the Shop small pop-up shops here on the Isle of Wight for the last 4 years and due to high demand, it made sense to invite some of my best sellers to permanently supply their works in the UK via a responsible storefront.

I am proud to spend the next few weeks introducing you to some of the work available at the studio & online here at Little Joy, which we hope will help you toward the coming festive season, truly sourcing sustainable, well designed, and made craft from all corners of the world for your perfect gift selections.

“Sjaelv was born out of the desire to create minimal and timeless leather goods that withstand the test of wear and time. All of our bags and accessories stand for clarity in design and the beauty of untreated, natural leather.

We are really passionate about sourcing responsible and believe in thoughtful purchasing. This is why we love to focus on working with pure vegetable tanned leather which will darken and age beautifully with time and wear.

All of our leather goods are entirely designed, hand-cut, and lovingly handcrafted in our small studio in Hamburg, Germany.”

Their mission is to create, beautiful, and sustainably made products that are made to last. The designs meant to be minimal and functional through time and not just for one season. Sjaelv designs are all about quality over quantity and efforts in sustainable material sourcing and ethical manufacturing. All of our bags are made of really pure and natural, vegetable-tanned leather from Europe which will get better and better with time and wear.
