Taylor Yates is an understated luxury bag company, centring themselves around familial values, social responsibility and sustainability. Founded by mother-daughter duo, Karen and Ellen Yates, the duo believes in giving back, where the use of sustainable materials and charity work play a significant role in this.
Taylor Yates bags are named and inspired by the women that helped to guide Karen, such as: Bessie, Doris and Mavis. Their biographies are incredibly fitting to each bag’s design and structure, giving the products a rounded narrative personifying their presence.
As a result of Taylor Yates using leather as a by-product of food production, the brand has been awarded The Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for a company-wide commitment to sustainability. Where authenticity and transparency are extremely prevalent within the current social consumer climate, Karen aims to fulfil this with her brand in terms of a firm stance upon ethics in which she realised Taylor Yates was necessary to fill the missing gap in the market.
For SS21, Taylor Yates have introduced new colours waves across a handful of their best-selling bags. Introducing a new colour palette, including a warm Mocha shade across their Agnes, Mavis and Norma bags and an earthy Forest hue for Doris Clutch, Frances, Mavis and Norma styles. Taylor Yates have also introduced a new suede panel on their Tilly design in Black.
