House and garden bags, accessories, and gifts.

Top shop for gifts in the UK.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Welcome to my shop!

My collection is a combination of handmade bags and house & garden gifts.

I design and make all my products in the North Bohemian village of Stary Tyn.

I love making use of the 'unwanted', finding amazing materials and reusing them to create something beautiful. And if they are old or discarded, even better!

Almost all the fabrics I use I get from England and Italy and are vintage and antique materials, factory samples and offcuts, and anything else that catches my eye. If it inspires me and I can give it a new life, I'm happy!

My shop also includes some vintage pieces that I find on my travels mainly in The Czech Republic and England.

Thank you for visiting my shop and feel free to write and say hello.

About FromNo19

On Etsy since 2010

Everything is because of the house...

I fell in love with No 19 Starý Týn the first time I stayed here alone: it was like I had come home.

In 2010 my cat Mario and I moved from our flat in Milan Italy to spend more time in the remote Czech village of Starý Týn in the beautiful North Bohemian countryside. Our aim was to bring new life to No 19, a rather run down former farm.

The house had lost almost all of its original features over the years and had become stark and empty, but there was so much potential. Having grown up in England with the ethos of ‘do it yourself’, I decided to approach this 200-year-old Sudeten farmhouse in exactly the same way.

Learning as I went along, I started restoring character to the building. I worked with what I had to hand and found creative ways of conserving and reusing materials, which is something that has now become central to everything I do.

I built the garden using stones I found buried in the ground and learnt about growing the plants I loved as the garden evolved. I furnished the house from flea markets and junk shops choosing items I felt fitted in-giving them a new place to live.

Now Mario has a large family to keep him company and the house feels more like a home even if there is still a long way to go. And when I think about it, I can't imagine having never lived here.

My range of vintage and hand-made home and garden products has only been possible because this house has given me this unique opportunity...The opportunity to discover what I love doing.

I find, design and hand make every product... but they are all essentially From No 19
