N e w - LEWIS large diaper tote. I've been consistently asked for a tote with exterior pockets, so eventually I managed to take time out from regular orders and finalise the new design. More colourways to follow - my new favourite x
These two are off to Brooklyn NY. HOLM regularly ships to North America, all orders come with tracking for your peace of mind - and mine! (unlike some shops I don't charge extra for this!) Bon voyage SKYE bags
This leather is so stupidly delicious to work with, soft and supple it oozes quality and lends itself best to classic unfussy design - let the material do the talking!

At the heart of Holm is a passion for quality material, timeless design and skilled craftsmanship.

I grew up on the West coast of Scotland, the hills were literally my backyard and the seashore my playground, I made things from sticks & heather and built vast empires on the beach from sand & stones. These natural elements still influence my adult world. I’m all about simple pleasures - warm summer evenings eating outside, standing in the wilderness and feeling the awe of nature, listening to birdsong, lying on grass cloud watching or being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves on a pebble beach.... I'm a mad keen gardener & also have a particular fondness for beautifully crafted hand-thrown pottery and pistachio ice cream.
I learned to stitch from a very young age regularly taking things apart to see how they were constructed before reconstructing them. This feel for fabric and design took me on to Art school where I gained a 1st class Degree from Bristol UWE and went on to achieve my Masters Degrees at Central Saint Martins London, being lucky to then spend many years working there. Children arrived & my then career took a hike! Once I started getting the hang of motherhood I accepted that I needed to allow myself time to get back into the studio to design & make again.Having always made things this decision was the best I ever took and has allowed me to have this career I adore. I work from my home studio/workshop which overlooks my garden, the birds sing while I work and so do I, although theirs is a much prettier song.

Why Holm? It’s a Scottish word for a small island and Holm is where the heart is.

Welcome to my corner of Etsy - everything in my shop is designed, made, tested, photographed and wrapped for shipping by me in my home studio in Devon UK.

I only sell things that I am proud of!

My standards are very high (much to my own annoyance sometimes!!) and I hope that this reflects in the quality of my work.

Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer until the item is back in my posession.

I really don't like all this offical stuff but it has to be done!
