ROKA London: Colourful Rainbow For Gloomy Days
British weather can be unpredictable all year round and this B-Corp company knows it well! ROKA London was born on a rainy day out of the blue to keep your belongings (and those of your closest friends) safely dry with its line of colourful bags and accessories. You can expect bags, totes and backpacks that instantly cheer up your day with a huge array of bright colours. A shoulder bag like Farringdon (£39.95) features high functionality that is equally highly sustainable. Canvas bags are made from recycled plastic bottles and nylon bags come from post-consumer and textile production waste; both plastic and fabric scraps would otherwise fill the landfill. These repurposed materials are then treated with an environmentally friendly C0 water-repellent coat to make each bag withstand the harshest conditions of the Island. Pick the colour that matches your state of mind and stroll with a Camden, a Paddington or a Trafalgar. Each piece has something about London where this story began.

(UN)POLISHED: Raw & Unique Jewellery
A piece of jewellery is a statement gift for special occasions like Christmas, but when handcrafted its preciousness levels up. (UN)POLISHED is the destination for those seeking creations of skilled artists that cannot be found in any other shop. This online gallery with a physical showroom in London is the house of selected Polish independent designers who craft sustainable and handmade jewellery with precious metals and natural stones. In series or one-of-a-kind, these jewels have the striking personality of their designers and convey powerful emotions in a raw state.
Among these creations, you can find KOPERNICUS by KARGUL.TK. Inspired by the celestial bodies of the infinite cosmos and the Earth, the KOPERNICUS collection consists of different earring styles, necklaces and bracelets handcrafted in Poland with a zero-waste approach using gold-plated 925 Sterling silver, ribbon and natural Baltic amber. The minimal geometries frame a warm heart of amber, the centrepiece of each piece.

Olverum: Essentially Luxurious
Olverum is an intimate story of passion and dedication for essential oils and their extraordinary benefits. It was the dawn of the 30s and harsh times were about to come for Europe, when the Klein family took on the challenge to replicate and supply their favourite spa with their signature essential oil. The trials succeeded in a luxury blend that circulated among the family's friends before being halted by the war. Klein's essential bath oil revives today in Olverum Bath Oil (£28). This stellar brand, loved by the Royal family, aims to take care of body and mind, whether it is to reinvigorate, calm or stabilise body, mind and soul. Olverum Bath Oil uses natural extracts known for their therapeutic properties, combined to elevate your spirit and bath time, relieve muscles and promote a night of restful sleep.
Olverum Bath Oil, skincare, body care and ritual lines are cruelty-free and use the finest natural extracts sourced in an ethical and environmentally friendly way around the world.

Emolyne: True Colour Match
Create an on-point lip and nail set for your makeup-obsessed friend (or yourself) with Emolyne. Tired of unmatching shades, Emolyne Ramlow decided to find the solution by herself with her eponymous brand. Born in Uganda, raised in Denmark and living in London, Emolyne created a world of possibilities with her collection of 15 glam reds and 15 fully flattering nudes to compliment every skin tone, undertone and ethnicity. Each shade is named after a city or a country in Africa, her continent of origin, and it is interpreted in hyper-pigmented semi-matte lipsticks (£23), lip liners (£15), lip glosses (£17) and nail polishes available as individual items and ready-to-give kits ranging from £39. Emolyne invites you to find your beauty destination from Fez to Cape Town with the twin nuance for both lips and nails. The perfect co-ord is as classic, sophisticated and hard to find, but with Emolyne you can find your match made in heaven.
All Emolyne products are cruelty-free and with superior colour payoff. Find a shade and build a monochromatic kit online.
