Many designer-makers work on commission orders. Whether it is a piece of pottery for a collection, a painting or a new bag, an independent maker can make you exactly what you want.

They tell me the story of their lives and what they need the bag for and I create the perfect bespoke bag just for them.


for a very long time and stand the test of time. Many handmade items are the heirlooms of the future.

through the generations. Without the handmade market place many of these skills would be lost. The market is keeping the skills alive and igniting peoples interest and imagination to have a go themselves. Buying handmade ensures that this growth continues and that skills are not lost, but handed down to the next generation.


When you are able to have a say in the design of a new vase, the style of a painting or design of a bag it is no longer an indulgence to buy handmade, but a requirement to get perfection!
