Why Luvit loves Roka

 Their funky colours and stylish but functional design make them easily recognisable. But what makes them so special? It's what are they made of? Most of the Roka bags we stock at Luvit are from the Roka Sustainable range. They are made using 12 to 15 recycled bottles found on beaches.  Living by the sea, I'm painfully aware of the amount of plastic that gets washed up on our much loved beaches.

So, in many ways, Luvit has allowed me to live my dream!  The Autumn window is both easy and difficult. There are so many strong themes and colours associated with this time of year its quite easy to come up with ideas. But you may end up looking a little cliched if you don't add a few variations to your theme. One of my favourite shops is Anthropologie. I am not their biggest customer but I do love visiting their stores and taking in the way they display items and the themes, styles and colours they use....
