Our Story

The Slowlist is a love letter to makers everywhere.

Born out of a passion for artisan makers, craftsmanship and sustainability, The Slowlist is a blend of fiercely independent brands, curated and handpicked in one easy to shop space. Blending Australian bohemia and British design, we want you to fall in love with the stories behind the product, as much as the product itself. 

Our ethos is pretty simple. Think of us as a matchmaker for beautiful, conscious brands and fabulous humans that want to buy better.

Meet Sophie…

Hailing from Australia, Sophie worked with luxury brands when she first moved to the UK. Inspired by the craftsmanship of the brands she worked with and influenced by her native laid-back Aussie style, she wanted to celebrate the making process, and offer others a new appreciation for their clothes.

“When I moved to the UK, I was struck by how difficult it was to find independent brands that cared about craftsmanship and sustainability, but that weren’t completely out of my price range. As far as I could see, there were only couture designers or alternatively, fast fashion chain stores. 

Coming from Australia, sustainability and an appreciation for the environment has been ingrained in me. It’s second nature. I think it’s the outdoor culture and the fact that we are surrounded by native flora and fauna. I created The Slowlist to celebrate conscious makers and bring them to the fore, making it easier for people to find these wonderful independents.” – Sophie, Founder
