Today I am welcoming Tatum from Tatum Diamond London as my next #incredibleindependents interviewee, here she shares more bout her business and her fabulous leather bags!

Hi I’m Tatum, founder of Tatum Diamond London a luxury handcrafted leather bag & accessory company.

1) Why did you start your business?

I had fallen out of love with my previous job as a digital design consultant and craved the opportunity to own the complete process. Now I do everything, from designing and making my beautiful bags to managing my PR and marketing.

2) What do you love about running your own independent business?

I love that everyday is a new challenge, be it sourcing a new leather supplies or a lovely clasp for one of my bags. Always looking for opportunities to show off my designs & trying to come up engaging social media posts.  

3) What is your favourite product or service and why?

My favourite bag is my Whitley, it’s the perfect size to use everyday & it can be worn in 5 ways as a clutch, a bum bag, over the shoulder, across the body or even attached to you the front of your bike.

4) Let’s spread the indie love, name some other independent businesses you support. 

I love @craftalavista family cards & baby clothes that Nicole prints they are just adorable. 

@bekkymayceramics her beautiful slip cast ceramic wall art is beautiful.

The newly refurbished Paradise_boutique_surrey in East Molesey is gorgeous, Helen has stocked it with all sorts of gorgeous bits and runs the occasional workshop from the shop.

5) Which is your favourite social media platform and why?

I love instagram, it’s a great platform for me to show off my bags & for people to find out more about my indie business.

A big thank you to Tatum for sharing more about her business – if you need a versatile bag, you know where to go! Please continue to support all the #incredibleindependents out there even if you just tell your friends about them, it all helps!
