Annabel studied at the renowned Sir John Cass Jewellery School, where she focused on ethical design processes, while gaining a comprehensive understanding of how to make and design jewellery. Georgina trained at Leith's School of Food and Wine. Her books Take One Pot, Take One Veg and On The Pulse are published by Kyle Books.

Little by Little's collections are inspired by the natural beauty found in food and are lovingly created using gold, silver and touches of enamel. Whether worn individually or as part of a set, each piece is impacting and eminently wearable, bringing a little ethical luxury into your everyday.
Little by Little is an ethical business and we are proud to partner with charity Action Against Hunger. We believe that together, we can all make a difference - little by little. Join us on the journey.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
GOTS has appointed several Representatives who operate in a global network to promote GOTS in their respective regions and around the world.
Christopher Stopes is the regional representative for the United Kingdom
We are living in the digital age with conscious consumption on the rise, yet sourcing is still often challenging, lacking transparency and full of inefficiencies. We spent the first two years of our business living in India where we visited over 200 factories. We were not just looking for the right partners to join our network, but also to better understand how to build a solution that would work for manufacturers as much as for brands.
We want to create the world’s most transparent and trusted supply chains, to offer the most responsible and innovative solutions to brands of all sizes and to provide the most seamless and intuitive experience for both brands and manufacturers.
The brands of future will have to do more with less, bring products to market quicker, react to changes faster and prioritise the ethics and sustainability. We believe openness, collaboration, sustainability and transparency will be the norm and that having faster, leaner, more agile and more responsible supply chains will be a necessity.
