Being true to who we are

Our story began one fateful day in Dublin Ireland, where our lives became an international adventure of love, creativity and exploration Together we have navigated the joys of building a cross-cultured life and marriage, and discovered strange and foreign places that each told us a little bit more about ourselves. It was in this less-than-usual life set up, that Charlotte found art, Drew found leather, and together we founded Isbell & Co. 

We use Isbell & Co as a project space to explore and share with you the things that we love. Across art, textiles & leather our focus is on timeless design and functionality, coupled with colour and beauty. We draw our inspiration from global stories, and choose specific artisans from around the world to select materials for each piece, before bringing it all to life in our small-scale studio.

 

We both still consider Isbell & Co a work in progress - we see the destination but we're not quite there - But the journey is such a big part of the adventure that we wanted to bring you all along with us.

Charlotte Marie Isbell

After working for more than a decade in the creative industry, and running her own business for the last four, Charlotte finally found her happy place in fine art and textile design. She moves fluidly between oils and acrylic exploring botanicals, landscapes and figurative forms. She is a published illustrator and her work has been featured in galleries across America. Charlotte paints art & textiles for Isbell & Co.

Drew McKinley Isbell

Born into a family of upholsterers and land surveyors, Drew spent much of his childhood playing with gadgets in various workshops. This naturally translated into his military EOD and safety career, but more relevantly his precision and craftsmanship when working with leather and leather tools. Drew designs & makes all Isbell & Co leather products.
