Hello and Welcome! Want to know a little more? Read on!

I work from home as designer/patternmaker/seamstress and I individually handmake each piece, making it truly one of a kind. Sustainability is very important to me. I am conscious about how I work and I try to minimise my impact on the environment. Each piece is produced in my smoke-free and happy home.

I love to work with high quality natural, organic and eco friendly fabrics but, I also make use of some remnant, recycled and vintage fabrics to minimise waste. Man-made/synthetic blends may be used in existing stock as these may give a certain quality, such as stretch or firmness which I was unable to find in a suitable natural fabric.

I believe the inside of a garment should be just as beautiful as the outside. Therefore I often like to combine different fabrics, patterns or sometimes a contrast colour for the lining. It adds a nice surprise!
