Bought a personalised cushion as a new baby present. Was well received and looks lovely in the nursery. Well made and promptly delivered.

I bought this for my husband to keep his iPod, earphones and other bits and bobs in - he loves it! Well made and funky too.

Amazing personalised zipper pouch for my husband, he loved it!!! Super swift contact from seller and various options given re font, colour etc. So nice to have a personal yet professional service. Superb quality and craftsmanship obviously made with love and attention. Will definitely recommend Splendid Elk to others and be a repeat customer. Thank you so much Splendid Elk, oh and my husband loved the tea bags which came gift wrapped with the pouch, nice touch!!!
Splendid Elk was born out of my weakness for beautiful fabric, my absolute need to create, and a long-standing dream to be my own boss.
For the most part, my career has been focused on the world of retail and business, providing clients with market research and customer service insight. I have always wanted to be on the other side of the fence though, to be my own boss.
When my son was born in 2013, I chose not to return to employment in favour of staying at home with him, whilst setting up Splendid Elk. Honestly, I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted the business to look like, no eureka moment, only that I wanted to run my own creative business, allow creativity to flow unstifled and dance to my own tune.
Today I run Splendid Elk part time around family life, the work life balance is pretty good and I’m really happy with the direction we’re going in.
The two people in the photo are my mum and my son, we had a wonderful few days in the sunshine at the seaside a couple of years ago, treasured memories.

I started sewing & creating when I was a young girl, inspired by my beautiful Nanny who was a court dress maker. Splendid Elk has evolved since day dot, I opened the shop selling handmade cosmetic bags, the focus is now personalised gift items & bags
