Handwoven and handmade by myself in my French studio. One-of-a-kind or limited edition. Totally unique.


Each piece is carefully stitched , woven and totally handmade my myself in my French studio. My creations happen one at a time all with individual attention to detail and finish.

The leathers I use are sometimes unusual, hard to source and on occasion one of a kind - so I can never guarantee that I will be able to repeat the same bag again once that piece of hide is used up.

Regarding Customization options - only slight adjustments to existing designs such as dimensions, colour and strap length are considered.

Wholesale : I do not do wholesale at present.

My sister has just opened her new Etsy store here - check it out!

It arrived on time and in good condition, but the "subtle shimmer" is actually quite shiny and it looks a bit weird, but it has grown on me over time, so I think it's okay, but I kind of wish it didn't sparkle quite so much. I hope with time, that some of it will wear off.

About

Weaving a Dream

After many constraints and limitations, my dream was finally brought to life once our home was made in France.

I left Scotland in 2009 with my husband and two children to live in a, now renovated, old stone barn. The 400 yr old house attached is where I nestle away in my studio. Surrounded by old world French charm and antiquity I cannot help but be inspired. The natural textures and shabby charm always touch my work in some way..

Going back a few years my weaving loom was bought in a burst of eager enthusiasm following a degree in textile design. After some initial efforts at freelancing - which included designing pieces included in London Fashion Week - my loom was assigned to the shadows as earning a living seemed unattainable.

Some detours later, via a short career in interior design and a home business designing stationery, my passion for handmade textiles resurfaced.

Now, years later, the weaving loom once assigned to the shadows sits proudly amidst French countryside - finally discovering its worth..

Unbeknown to me, a hop,skip and a jump away stood an enormous leather supply - hides from Paris design houses no longer required jumbled together with end of line leathers from Italian, French and Spanish tanneries. Just waiting to be delved into.. well that was the beginning of the adventure! Huge reels of cotton braid, odds and ends from the regional slipper factories, just lying waiting to have a moment's worth. It was just shouting out 'make something amazing!!'

I started to weave with what was available to me close at hand, and together with the beautful and very often unusual pieces of leather a story started to emerge.. I call it ..

Byloom and Hyde…

Now in it's fifth year I am working solely by myself - I design, make, photograph and even model! Original and Handmade by me!!

Welcome to Byloom and Hyde - bespoke distinctive and one-of-a-kind bags designed and created by myself in my old French studio here in South West rural France.

Since my time at art school studying textiles I have travelled a long and windy road which took me places I never planned to be. My desire was always to have my own design studio - and here I am at last!

I love it here!

Creating fashion has become a pleasure I never expected. I am only satisfied once I produce something I am happy to carry myself!

My design approach always involve a mix of some sort - whether weaving and stitching, or mixing tweed with leather..it's 'in the mix' that I find my designs. Spontaneity and instinct play a huge part in what I create and many methods are often unique.
