Its Not Me Its You, London

A bit of exciting news to tell you all. We have been nominated for a BILLI 2013* in three categories: best new website, best foil-embossed leather goods, best selection of slogans. This is massive. This is why we started out. It is all about getting recognition from your peers. Especially when they are cool. And a BILLI, in our industry (leather bags with slogans), is the coldest of icing on the very cool cake. Once we have more details on how you can vote for us we will let you know. It will cost you £3.99 per text plus the standard network charge but it would be so exciting, for us, if you could dig a little bit into your pocket and give us your vote.


*I came up with the idea of the BILLIs this morning. It was just obvious, you know, because we want awards so why not just make some up and win them all. Isn't that how it works nowadays? Everyone making up awards, all self-congratulatory. To be fair I will make up two jewellery categories so my friend Lolly can win those, she makes very nice rings actually. And to be really official I will hold a ceremony: Pearl's Court, 20th May. Pearl is the old lady who lives next door to the factory and she has a small terrace out the back. However, unlike all the other made-up awards, we have banned Anne Hathaway and Emeli Sandé from coming.

Be the first to know about new stuff going up here. We promise to only send nice, useful things that we feel you need to know about.


Its Not Me Its You is a brand of leather stuff to carry other stuff, made and printed by hand in East London. Each piece comes with a slogan. Set up in late 2012 we pride ourselves on the quality of the leather, the craftsmanship and the foil-embossed slogans. Your bag is a statement, we believe, and with a 'Its Not Me Its You' bag you will be making that very clear for all to see. You can find us here and in Topshop (London).
