Initially London is an American-style monogramming company. We specialise in a broad but curated range of accessories, linens and gifts featuring a colourful embroidered monogram. We offer a choice of over 50 monogram font styles and thread colours including neons and metallics.

Our product line is timeless, classic and affordable including canvas and waxed canvas tote bags, straw baskets, cotton wash bags, leather accessories, yoga mats, insulated water bottles, bath and table linens and more.

Monograms are a graphic representation of your name using your initials. It’s a centuries old tradition, embroidered by hand in days of old, that Initially London has made modern and fun with graphic design software. Your monogram becomes your personal brand logo.

Our website’s exclusive monogram design tool allows you to create your own bespoke monogram and see it previewed on the item you wish to purchase. You can edit the design as much as you like, changing font styles and thread colours to achieve the perfect monogram.

We also have new monogramming techniques that enable us to put your monogram on insulated water bottles, lacquer boxes, necklaces, beaded bags and more. We’re introducing new products and new techniques all the time so keep an eye on our Instagram page (@initiallylondon) to stay up to date.

Lavolio Boutique Confectionery

Lavolio boutique confectionery is seriously sophisticated confectionery handmade using traditional artisan techniques. We use whole nuts, real pieces of fruit, chocolate, spices and coffee to create delicious confectionery that comes in beautifully presented designer gift tins.

Each Lavolio sweet takes up to five days to create and has a delicate sugar-spun shell handmade in the old-fashioned way. We start by making the ‘heart’ of the sweet by toasting nuts, candying real pieces of fruit or by hand pouring our apple-based jelly into moulds. Then we add chocolate or spices one layer at a time. Finally, all of our sweets are delicately spun to form the crunchy sugar shell that naturally preserves their loveliness.

We have 30 different flavours across our signature range of 5 delicious Collections: Nutty Forest, Decadent Spiced, Fruit Garden, Arabian Nights and Coconut Follies.
We also have a range of Soft Nougat in 3 flavours – Pistachio, Almond and Hazelnut & Cocoa, melt-in-your-mouth fruit-flavoured Fondant Lovelies (nut-free) and some seasonal goodies including Nutty Mini Eggs for Easter and our Christmas delicacy: Marrons Glacés, delightful caramelised chestnuts of only Italian provenance.

We also provide bespoke corporate gifts and wedding favours. Our bespoke favours are made-to-order and add a flavour of Italy to special occasions including weddings, Christenings, anniversaries, dinner parties or any event where you would like to treat your guests. They can be personalised or matched to your wedding stationery.
Our confectionery is enjoyed by Royalty, Michelin-starred restaurants, in prestigious establishments such as Fortnum & Mason, and in boutique food stores around the world!
