I had an idea of a bag I wanted for work to carry my laptop and all the other things I like to carry about with me. I wanted something reasonably priced, genuine leather, high quality, a bag that was colourful, a little different and practical for work...ok so quite a long list. I spent some time trying to search for this dream bag and noticed that a lot of the work bags for women were actually pretty dull. I could visualise the bag I wanted, but I just couldn't find it, so that's when I decided to design my own and launch Cataleya London. I've been lucky to meet Gracey, who shares my love for the brand, the concept, functional designs and all things accessories!

I have always had a love of fashion. As a young girl, growing up with parents that worked so hard to make ends meet, I would search garage sales, consignment shops, thrift stores, and discounted stores and would shop for smart pieces of clothing that I could style. I remember being 12 years old and receiving my first magazine subscription in the mail and to me, that felt like Christmas morning! I went on to design and launch a jewellery range and then become Co-Founder of Cataleya London. Having first launched in Reetu's hometown, London, I'm excited to bring Cataleya London to the US!
