Bright Light PR has been appointed to handle the PR and communications for SMITH AND CANOVA; a family-run British heritage leather and accessories brand representing over 100 years of master craftsmanship and expertise in the industry.
The Smith and Canova story began out of a small and humble leather repairs shop in Lady Lane, Leeds, founded by David Smith Senior in 1910. Three generations of leathercraft and nearly 100 years later, his grandson, David Smith Junior, founded the brand in 1995 drawing from his rich family history in leather-crafted goods. Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength, building an impressive reputation through innovative design techniques and a unique attention to detail.
As well as a stunning allure to the eye, each luxury leather item is guaranteed at its most possibly refined. From the sourcing of raw leather right through to the aftercare, only the best of British quality and design is awarded with the respected Smith and Canova logo.
Following multiple award wins for services to fashion and design from the British Trade Association, Smith and Canova’s team of expert designers continue to travel around the world, tirelessly creating new and cutting-edge designs for each new season to come.
Paige Mengers, Managing Director of Bright Light, commented ‘We are delighted to be working with Smith and Canova. Their ranges of contemporary and tech-friendly designs are breaking new ground in the British heritage market, and we are so pleased to be a part of the adventure. This is a really exciting opportunity for Bright Light to utilise our extensive know-how in both the luxury and digital
sectors to position the brand at the forefront of rich and cultural British design, where it has always belonged.
