About

Creating, trusting....taking the risk.....living the dream......

It doesn't come without risks to trust that what you really love to do will be a way to sustain a living.....

For me those risks are worth taking for the reward of sheer pleasure that I feel everytime someone buys one of my creations.

Getting my inspiration from years of travelling, exploring, living and learning in, up, down about and beyond this wonderful world....my story with creative clothing began with experimenting with making my own clothes whilst backpacking around Asia. It led on to making a few pieces to sell in markets and festivals in the UK and has taken me along a self-taught experimental journey of discovery that has become a way of life.

Everything that I have learnt about pattern making, leather and its crafting and design has all been through trial and error.....from sitting, watching and hands on practice with tailors and artisans in India.

Having an online shop has given me the opportunity to create beautiful images of my designs, I thoroughly enjoy the experience of working and learning about the world of photoshoots and fashion photography through everytime that I organise one. I have learnt everything through friends and creatives that are in the industry......and Im running the shop from wherever I am with my computer.......truly a psyber nomad!!

Keeping my business small and unique actually gives me much more pleasure as an artist than expanding into mass production......most of my leather comes from surplus markets from which Im never too sure what I will find......this makes the whole process very creative and exciting each time Im making a new collection.......one of my best sellers the Lilith pleated skirt I feel has been so popular because it takes on a very different character according to the leather or suede from which it is made...

You can rest assured that I pay a lot of attention to quality and detail...and all my pieces I view as wearable art..an expression of my creativity.....I will go to great lengths to buy the best quality materials that I can find at the time. Most of the leather I choose personally as with this material its definitely all about the feel.....I have spent months trying to track down the two tone sheepskin fur used on my other best seller...the Selkie hooded vest when it wasn't available....just because it looks so good!

If an item is delayed in the mail which thankfully doesn't happen so often.....I will also go to great lengths to track it down and make sure that it gets to your door.....To date not one item has ever got lost! fingers crossed!!

But most importantly to receive amazing feedback from happy customers really is the fuel the keeps these creative fires going......

Enchanted Clothing is definitely still a life's artwork in progress and one which I hope will continue to drive me on a journey of so much satisfaction......

Thank you for your support!! XX

Welcome!!.......Enchanted clothing began as a very raw, elfin, sexy, tribal look with ragged edges and has evolved into my more tailored, slightly fetish, bordering on burlesque yet still tribal look of today. Perhaps we could call it Tribalesque?.....

I work mainly with suede and leather, but occasionally branch out and make some silk or hemp clothing.

My favourite part of each creation is the decoration, for which I always use a mixture of metal studs, eyelets, chains, feathers and semi precious stones. Also included can be any eye-catching items which I have collected during my travels around this fascinating planet.
A hand made item always carries the energy of its maker, I try to love each piece and fill it with magic and enchantment. I feel a delightful joy when someone wears and loves something I have created....

All the leather and suede I use is ethically produced. The animals, which are always either goats, sheep or water buffalo live their lives outdoors in natural environments. The whole animal is used; The animals are never farmed purely for their skin. I always hand pick each skin, choosing the softest, strongest and most beautiful. I buy from cottage industries in India and Nepal. These are family run businesses and at this time, especially in Nepal, they are very much in need of our custom......

Most of the inspiration and creation of the style and decoration of my pieces still happens in the Himalayas......I spend months up in the Indian village of Bagsunag, just outside Mcleod Ganje which is home of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan refugees....and for me, one of the most enchanting places on Earth.....what better place for the creation of Enchanted Clothing ?

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I prefer payment by visa card, credit card or paypal but can also accept a bank transfer. When the payment has come through I will ship your order within 3 days after payment has cleared and so depending on where you are prices and time will vary but it shouldnt take more 14 days to most places. Im shipping mainly from India at the moment...sometimes via courier taking only 5 days and sometimes by EMS India speedboats taking usually 7-10 days. If it is by courier I will contact u for your phone number. I am also shipping from Spain by CORREOS registered and tracked mail which takes 7-10 days.
Shipping
All items are sent fully tracked and as a gift. 99.9% of the time they usually arrive without any extra taxes.

Im sorry but I also cannot cover any customs duty taxes that may be charged....though this hardly ever happens!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your Enchanted item, you can return it, but you will have to pay for the shipping and it must be in the same condition it was sent out. I will then exchange you item for something else.

I am a small independant designer and it is not possiible for me to cover shipping charges as large chain stores do...especially as 95% of my sales are international!...Sorry about that!

I like to take special care in the sale of every item to ensure that the correct size and colour is sent out and to date I have had very few exchanges!

I will exchange only if the item is unused, unworn etc. Also if the item doesnt fit properly etc, then contact me as I can make alterations....we can work something out in most cases!
Additional policies and FAQs
I hand pick all my leather myself and spend half my year in India from december/jan onwards.
I can organise wholesale orders on certain items please contact me for more details!
