Forbes & Lewis was launched in 2013 and the name originates from the founders’ names, married partners Samuel Lewis Windridge and Katie Forbes.

F&L’s fascination with product and fashion design started at a young age imagining ways in which an item could be enriched.

Identifying a gap in the market for durable, well-designed bags at entry-level luxury prices that withstand the test of time, alongside a focus on items that could be endorsed by men and women using intelligent androgynous design was their catalyst.
