Hello and thanks for visiting... I love textiles and studied fashion & textiles followed by design history and museum studies. So now when I have time I revisit that world and get lost in making; sometimes for my own fun, for friends and family, and occassionally for sale. Mostly just because I can't resist.

My work is based on a sumptuous choice of vintage, Japanese and geometric fabric patterns meticulously cut, strengthened, structured, then finished off with a treasure trove of fastenings, findings and embellishments.

I love innovative contemporary design, craft and design history, and especially adore repeat pattern and surface design - with contemporary Japanese and 20th century Scandinavian design holding a special place in myheart.

I've been sewing since the age of 4, taught by Grandma, my hero.


Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If anything does go astray in the post I will refund you the amount I am able to claim back from Royal Mail, which *should* be the full amount. I will keep you informed of the progress of any such claim as it moves along. If you wish to check Royal Mail's refund policies as guidance for what to expect for 1st class and Airmail visit

Any items returned to me due to uncollection from a sorting office, post office, customs etc, or because the address provided from your etsy or paypal account is not accurate or correct, your order will only be resent once you have paid the replacement shipping costs. Your initial shipping costs will not be refunded.
Payment by paypal for international buyers, please pay at the time of purchase.
UK customers can pay by cheque, your item will be posted once the cheque has cleared.

I aim to ship within 5 working days of payment clearing, and often much sooner. If you need your purchase in a hurry contact me and I'll do my absolute best.

Prices are 1st class in UK or Airmail to anywhere else. Insurance is not included but can be added on extra if required.

Please note UK 1st class and standard airmail are not trackable services. If you prefer a traceable service please let me know and I will find out costs for your location and let you know before sending you a revised invoice.

Any relevant customs charges are the responsibility of the buyer.
