We caught up with Arabella to find out a little more about her travelling memories and what’s important to her when running a sustainable brand…

Tell us about your most meaningful, exciting or stand out memory of travel.

The day lockdown lifted in the summer of 2020, we jumped in the car and drove to Europe. We stopped in France, then made our way through Italy. My kids had never been to Venice before and we had three perfect days there. It was empty of tourists and more beautiful than ever. In Florence, it felt like we had the Uffizi to ourselves. Standing in front of Botticelli’s Venus on my own was one of those moments I knew I’d remember all my life.
