Hello,
Welcome to Twiice Loved

About Me

My name is Emily Elizabeth and I have a degree in Fashion Design. I have always been creative and as a child this was encouraged by my mother, who is also a very creative person. A lot of what I know, I have learnt from her. I love all kinds of crafts and think there is something very pleasing about creating and/or buying unique handmade items. I specifically enjoy sewing, hence the Fashion degree. I love trawling through vintage stalls, antique markets and charity shops in the hope of finding a little gem, be it a trinket for a shelf or a beautiful piece of fabric.

I live in London, England and have done so all my life. It is a really buzzing place to live and work and I find inspiration in so many parts of the City. London is known for its eccentric and eclectic mix of styles. I live on the outskirts of London, so I am also very close to the countryside, which is another huge inspiration of mine. I think it’s a nice balance in life to mix the city life with nature and I reflect this into my work. Some days I’ll be in my Wellington boots in a field walking the dog, others I will be on the London underground with all the city workers. It’s a strange blend of surroundings that works to my advantage when it comes to creativeness.


Design

The reason for the name Twiice Loved, is because I love the idea of all the materials that I use having a previous purpose and a previous life, before being created into beautiful Rag Dolls, that will then go on to be loved....Twiice Loved. This is what I do with the fabric used to make the clothes for my Rag Dolls as I use vintage and recycled materials. I made my first ever Rag Doll as a way of using up some of the old scraps of fabric I had lying around. I am very fortunate that when people have clear outs of fabric or anything sewing related they give it to me to see if I can make use of it. My mum also knows some wonderful old ladies that have given us bags of vintage fabric over the years. The dolls are ever so fun to make and I love that everyone is different.

Inspiration

I find inspiration all around me where I live, but I also do a lot of travelling. Every summer I travel to America to places like Arizona, Texas, Colorado, California, Utah, to name a few. I find the culture so intriguing and draw inspiration from the landscapes of the National Parks and people. I am also inspired by the Native Americans and the way in which they live. Another culture that I am influenced by would be Mexicans. I love all the vibrant colours and imagery that follows the culture. Obviously antiques and vintage items inspire me a great deal but if I had to pick specific eras that I am enthused by I would have to say the 20s, 40s and 50s. I love the clothing from all these eras.
