Logi Trading was found by two friends, Sarah and Carol who met whilst working on the Suffolk Coast. Carol has worked in fabric product design and manufacture for 30 years whilst Sarah runs a business making and altering marine covers.
When Carol was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in Feb 2018, Sarah gave her the challenge of designing a luxury holdall to help take her mind of her treatment and the Aldeburgh bag was born in March 2018. In September, after months of Chemo therapy, Carol had an operation to remove a tumour and then underwent a course of radio therapy. Side effects from the treatment caused numb feet and hampered her ability to use a sewing machine, but she continued with a positive outlook and the designs for the Logi range was completed 5 months later.
The company is named after Logan - Carol’s first grandchild - who was born at the height of her illness in April 2018.
Carol now oversees the production of the Logi range and is responsible for ensuring the high standard of workmanship she started continues.
10% of all profits from each bag sold will go towards the Suffolk based cancer charity ‘Caring for Me’, who supported Carol during her illness.
