Announcement    Welcome to the home of cotton-sox!

I emigrated from South Africa to the UK at the end of 2013. The transition was not going to be as easy as I initially thought it might be. After struggling for several years to find work I decided to bring and share a bit of Africa with you in creating home décor and accessories and incorporating traditional heritage cotton Shweshwe fabrics in my handcrafted designs.

In 2017 cotton-sox was born initially with a home décor and accessories range. I subsequently discovered the craft of handbag making which I have to say has become highly addictive! As my experience grew the thought of using other materials piqued my interest. cotton-sox now uses a variety of fabrics including cottons, genuine leather, faux leather, as well as cork leather (as it is called), and has been moved onto my Etsy page. Admittedly and unashamedly I love the finer things in life, and it goes without saying that I always use the very best quality materials I can find in my designs.

I hope you will join me on my journey to turn cotton-sox into its own unique brand. All items are handcrafted by me on the outskirts of London in the U.K.

“bless your cotton socks” is a term of affection to the recipient, and a name my late father used to call me hence ‘cotton-sox’!

Welcome to the home of cotton-sox!

“bless your cotton socks” is a term of affection to the recipient, and a name my late father used to call me as a little girl. I enjoy a bit of quirkiness now and then, so working with cotton and in honouring my father it seemed like the natural course of action to name my small business ‘cotton-sox’.

Sewing was introduced to me by my grandmother who could always be found making something from scratch whether that was preparing a meal or sewing a garment. Times were tough then and sheets that had worn thin were never thrown out, but rather patched, repaired, or darned. As my love for her grew, so did the love of her creativity grow within in me. I have always been found trying out new crafts, however, sewing has always remained a constant for me. My cotton-sox range varies from home décor to handbags and accessories. My heritage has always been British, but my roots are ‘out of Africa’ and with this I incorporate in some of my designs the original and traditional Shweshwe cotton fabrics from South Africa which date back to the early 1820 settlers of the Cape.

All my products are proudly handcrafted by me with nothing being mass produced thus making them individual, unique and statement pieces. Always paying close attention to detail from inception right down to the wrapping and posting of the item purchased. I would like my customers to have the ‘feel good cotton-sox experience’ from the first communication to execution, and finally to receiving of their purchases.

I hope you will join me on my journey to turn cotton-sox into its own unique brand. All items are handcrafted by me on the outskirts of London in the U.K.

Thank you for your interest shown in my work and “bless your cotton socks!”

    Welcome! Having lived in several countries I have discovered that all women love handbags. Handbag making is an art, as a perfectionist it takes time, blood (yes, sometimes) and tears to complete the process, so bear with me and enjoy the result!
