BEHIND THE BRAND
I’ve always had a love of colourful fashion, conversational prints and vintage style. After a long career as a handbag & accessory design for luxury British brands, I spotted a niche in the market for colourful, contemporary leather gloves, and so the Mabel & Frederick Sheppard brands were born (named after my Grandparents).
Surface pattern, and a sense of fun define the Mabel Sheppard aesthetic.
Each design is timeless, cheerful and defies seasonal trends.
I hope my gloves and accessories will bring a smile to your face, and lift your spirits on the gloomiest of days
SUSTAINABILITY & MANUFACTURING
All leathers used are a by-product of the food, wool and dairy industries and a completely renewable source. Dyes used are ecologically safe.
I work closely with my manufacturers and they are regularly assessed by the Amfori BSCI code of conduct to meet their labour principles for ethical business behaviour.
Stock and samples are regularly donated to local charities. As a member of CFA (Charity Fairs Association), a proportion of sales at these events are donated to charities including Save The Children and Isabel Hospice.
