Jardine of London is a truly British luxury handbag brand founded by Mary Jardine in 2014. All our handbags are individually handcrafted by highly skilled craftspeople in England by a 5th generation family business.The inspiration for the star used in our logo comes from the Jardine Star Brooch. This brooch was bequeathed to Queen Elizabeth II in 1981 by Lady Jardine who was married to a Scottish baronet. Each bag has the star blind embossed on the lid along with a beautiful array of tiny stars printed on the lining inside.Mary was brought up in Gloucestershire but moved to Suffolk when she was married and lives there now and has 2 grown-up boys. With manufacturing in the UK declining in the fashion world, Mary felt the need to support British manufacturing. To that end, she felt determined to have her handbags all handcrafted in Britain.
