 Hannah is currently studying a Masters degree at Bangor University. Being vegetarian, finding durable leather alternatives for handbags and jewellery was always quite a challenge, until she discovered how cork was beautifully utilised in Portugal. With a love for animals, an interest in marketing and a desire to reduce the impact we have on the environment - she began working on Cortiça Boutique alongside Elliot.
