Introduce yourself and your role at Lotta From Stockholm.
I am Lotta and I was born and raised in Stockholm but now live in Twickenham SW London with my husband and three children. I am still very involved with many different areas of the business, so you can find me in the office going through the leather samples for the next seasons range at one point and then an hour later I am in the warehouse packing orders as I still love to see what people are buying. As I write this, I am on the plane to Sweden to visit the factory and look at some of the samples we just had made.
How would you describe Lotta From Stockholm in five words?
Love, life, passion, fun, family, friends. That’s six but I couldn’t decide which one to leave out!
Backstory: When, where and how was the company established?
It all started in my kitchen nearly nine years ago. I bought some clogs back from my summer trip to Sweden and all my friends were asking me to buy some for them each time I went. It was just a couple of pairs each time at first, then a suitcase full and it just snowballed from there. My son had just started school, so it seemed like an ideal time.
My favourite product is nearly always the latest sample pair I have. Right now, it’s a pair of Highwood Nude with Brown Base but if I had to choose an all-time favourite then it would have to be the Peep Toe in Natural leather. I have been wearing the same pair each summer for the past 4 years.
What product launch are you most looking forward to and why?
The next one! I always get really excited when we launch new things. I guess when I don’t it may be time to stop.
We often end up doing things late here as I can’t always make up my mind and I still have colour samples on my desk for the coming summer!
