Fusing ethical, vegan fashion with brand new LED technology
Fabrikk dare to be different and promise to be fair. Their flagship Vela handbag is made from an exciting new cruelty-free cork ‘leather’ and is the first handbag to debut an automated LED illuminating material inside – so say goodbye to rummaging for your keys in the dark! They also produce a range of cork flat caps, baker boys and baseball caps all handmade in Yorkshire (home of the flat cap!) and a collection of small cork accessories; the minibag and the money pouch. Their mission is to constantly implement production methods which will help people and their local communities and to continue to find new ways to design and produce classic, functional, innovative, cruelty-free and long-lasting products.
Kate Pearson - Founder
Product designer Kate from Leeds UK, founded Fabrikk in 2013, inspired by the emerging world of smart materials and wearable tech (and quite possibly the Star Wars ‘Cantina’ scene!). Following her passion for design, unique materials, and quality UK manufacturing, sourcing ethical materials along with ethical production practices were the only option when building the Fabrikk team.
The Fabrikk team strives to create a positive and forward-thinking community around the brand. She is constantly up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in textile technology, to improve the functionality and environmental and social impact of our products and production techniques.
