Maker's Story:

Zoe Larkins is the inspired British designer and maker behind the covetable handstitched leather jewellery and accessories label, ’Love From Hetty & Dave’. 


A Silver Smithing graduate of Kent Institute of Art & Design in 2001, Zoe was soon attracted by the more tactile qualities of leather & textiles and the possibilities for original and eclectic designs. 

Inspired by South American folk art, vintage design and 1950s kitsch, by 2004 Zoe had begun making her own range of handstitched nappa leather handbags, purses, brooches, and necklaces, successfully selling on London’s Portobello and Spitalfields markets and quickly establishing a cult following.

Zoe's highly original best selling items include up-cycled classic 1960s handbags customised with hand sewn decorative leather designs, including British birds and animals, for a contemporary edge; kooky cashmere slug characters; adorable country house tweed terrier and sausage dogs, and limited edition necklaces comprising luscious scarlet leather strawberries.


Love From Hetty & Dave designs have been picked up by customers all over the world, including celebrities, Amy Winehouse, Deborah ‘Dragon’ Meaden, and Jodie Harsh.
