I have been looking for months for silk cushions that were simple, yet elegant and finally found these. They are absolutely stunning so have just bought another pair. Had quite a few messages with Diane Shaw Silk regarding colours and numbers and they were extremely prompt in responding.

Love this pouch purse, it’s for a friend, I am reluctantly giving this as part of a present. Thanks Diane. x
Having loved my time working with silks at a bespoke lampshade workshop in Brighton, on the south coast of England, I decided to branch out on my own. I noticed that quite a lot of the offcuts from the lampshades were being thrown out.... so I decided to act! The owner allowed me to carry these huge bags of material scraps home and I discovered that there were all sorts of pieces of beautiful silk - from organza to ornately embroidered high end fashion silks by top interior designers - in all shapes and sizes - to sort through. I could then begin creating my own little works of art... everything I make is a one-off, never to be repeated, and totally exclusive to Diane Shaw Silks.
Using hand embroidery, beadwork and crotchet, I embellish many of the pieces I make, and I've also recently started weaving small pieces of my own silk fabric on a small table loom, which is great fun!
I accept both private and trade commissions, and have completed projects for the prestigious London embroidery company Hawthorne & Heaney to create bespoke pieces, including for London Fashion Week.

Owner, Maker, Designer
I trained as a bespoke silk lampshade maker with a major British company supplying international designers. I 'upcycle' the gorgeous silk remnants, weave my own original pieces, add embroidery and other embellishments to make luxurious one-off items.
All items are individually handmade by me in my workshop in West Sussex, England to the highest standard of workmanship, using only the finest silk fabrics, silk threads and trimmings. All are one-off items which will not be duplicated.
I trained as a maker of bespoke silk lampshades at the excellent 'Shade Above' workshop in Brighton, an established company who supply top international designers. By 'upcycling' the gorgeous silk remnants of this trade I have created a unique collection of pieces inspired by the shapes and colours of the individual fabric pieces themselves and to which I have added my own original hand woven silk fabric pieces, silk embroidery and other embellishments.
I am a designer-maker listed in the Homes and Gardens Magazine and UKHandmade Directories, I have also been featured in the UKHandmade Designer Maker Showcase. I accept both private and trade commissions, and have completed several projects for the prestigious London embroidery company Hawthorne & Heaney to create bespoke pieces, most recently for London Fashion Week.
