With a background in Interior Design my love of designing things and using textiles is in my blood. My shop is a personal exploration of favourite materials and crafts.
What began as a felt mobile for my daughter when she was born has progressed into a love of creating all sorts of wearable accessories from different textiles in particular upcycled fabrics.
