Announcement    We design and make fashion accessories from leather and other natural materials. Our designs are timeless, rooted in history and folktale. We also to try to be green by using high end materials and techniques, thus avoiding fast fashion completely.

Our line has influences from the history and folk lore of Ireland and the British Isles. We are working on purses, caps and tea cosies in tartan and tweed, with foxes, swans, elephants, dragons, peacocks, etc. done in applique, embroidery and block printing.

Our aesthetic is that of timelessness. We are influenced by the past, by nature, history and fantasy. As a former costumer, I bring a sense of fantasy to the designs, with historical or whimsical elements. However, all pieces are well made and practical for use. Internal structure and supports are invisible to the naked eye but critical to longevity.
In addition, the embellishment we do on many of our items separates them from any pieces that are made from commercially available materials. All the art work on the designs and the patterns of the items are original to us.

Many of our pieces feature embellishment of some kind, such as applique, embroidery, block printing and sometimes stencils. Often there is a combination of several techniques in a piece.

I also make home accessories and patterns, please go to https://etsy.me/2vii0yp to see my other line.

We design and make fashion accessories from leather and other natural materials. Our designs are timeless, rooted in history and classic folktale.

How you present yourself is a reflection of who you are. We all want our appearance to reflect our unique selves: the individual we have been in-training for our entire life.

Live your life creatively.

Fine fashion and home accessories, inspired by life in Canada. From our national flag, our native flora and fauna, to the pandas at the zoo and exhibits at the Art Gallery of Ontario, our world around us influences our exclusive designs.

Designer's Bio:

Patricia Richardson (Paddy) is a Canadian textile artist, born in the Niagara Peninsula. Interspersed between her studies in fashion design, fabric design, embroidery and arts education at various institutions such as The Academy, the Royal Conservatory of Music, Sheridan and Fanshawe Colleges, and Western University, she pursued a career as a costume designer and maker. In this field she practised and developed a wide variety of artistic textile techniques. After many years in this area, Patricia sustained a spinal injury and was told by her Doctor to stop practising the heavy costume work she had been doing daily and to "...work on nothing heavier than a hat". Taking him literally, she undertook the Millinery Certificate programme at George Brown College. Patricia now produces fashion and home accessories. Using her own patterns and designs, she dyes and paints the fabrics, cuts and manipulates them into shape and combines them with techniques such as embroidery and beading into unique art pieces.

Patricia holds a BA, and is a Certified Artist/Educator as well as a Certified Milliner. She teaches and has published articles about embellishment and design.
