All A Trifle Busby items are designed and made by me in a tiny studio in Teddington where I photograph and package everything myself too. I find most of my wonderful fabrics from fabric stores, vintage emporiums and charity shops, but I also design and paint my own fabric ranges, and can create custom orders when something even more unique is required, just send me a message!

I created A Trifle Busby for individuals who want something extra special for their wedding, event or occasion and those who favour an update on the classic accessory.
