Suzanne Woods' Profile

About

I love textiles - from nubbly tweeds to sensuous velvet. One of my favorite places is the Victoria and Albert Museum in London where browsing the textile archive is a real treat. So, when I wanted to create my own accessories range, I knew that vintage fabric design and ornamentation would be an inspiration.
For my clutch bags, I use vintage silks mainly from Japanese kimonos and enhance the bags with a velvet corsage. My corsages, hair accessories and necklaces are made from silk/viscose velvet which I hand-dye in subtle shades and sew with glass beads and crystals. My scarves combine vintage silks such as old sari fabric with silk georgette which I dye to complement.
Most items are one-of-a-kind and are made with attention to detail. My desire is to make something you will love, an heirloom for the future.
Enjoy browsing my shop.
