Artist Statement

"As a maker with a particular interest in using vintage fabrics to create stylish, functional objects, I consider myself to have a keen eye for detail. I trained in Illustration, worked for designer, Zandra Rhodes, and as a retail merchandiser for Habitat before becoming Head of Textiles at a large secondary school."


Because each of our products are one-off, we are unable to list the full extent of our current stock. Although we do not have an on-line shop, we do hold stock and as such have product ready to dispatch today.

If you are interested in a specific UK location or colour combination, we may well have or be able to make one especially for you.

For commissions please allow up to 10 days for delivery, but most items can be ready sooner.
