I am passionate about designing and making handbags that stand out from the crowd - handbags for individualists. Each one is different and combines my love of colour and traditional textile processes into unusual shapes, which are functional and practical but also quirky and fun - a tactile piece of art on your arm.
My design process is very random - inspiration comes from anything and everything. My favourite design tools are my scissors - poised over a piece of fabric - the start of a journey. Nothing is wasted - any small offcuts will provide the inspiration for a new design.
I am also venturing into using recycled garments/fabrics which is very exciting - I love the idea of transforming a throw-away item into something beautiful. Its a win-win situation. Textiles that hold special memories can be reborn into a new format whilst still retaining their reminders.
The bags are finished to the highest standards and are not completed until I'm thrilled with the outcome.
