About the brand
Josephine & Joe bags and accessories are made by hand in the U.K which is something they are incredibly proud of.
Following an extensive career in the fashion industry, designing womenswear and lingerie prints throughout the UK high street, Caroline Bithrey, founded Josephine & Joe in 2016. This came as an idea when dropping her daughter off to nursery and wanting to somehow incorporate liberty fabrics into a children’s bag which would be practical for ages 3+. It then transpired that women mostly liked the bags for themselves!
Caroline uses her endless knowledge of printed designs to carefully select fabrics from the liberty range of beautiful cottons. These designs are then incorporated into a simple practical backpack for women and children.
Josephine is the founders middle name and when she realised it was too feminine to appeal to boys she decided to add on the sub range, & Joe, a range of unisex bags for both boys and girls.
All of the Josephine & Joe bags using liberty fabrics are made in the U.K and this arm of the business has been fundamental in encouraging the huge skill set available. The brand is looking into developing further accessories ranges this summer, including children’s hats and women’s leather bags.
