A little bit of low-key decadence, with sparkle and a somewhat ethical twist. Using some recycled, some vintage fabrics, some remnant and limited edition craft / Japanese fabrics to create 100% handmade bags and accessories for that special occasion or for everyday essentials. Complemented by my ‘knitted’ necklaces made with colourful cotton cord for the essential summer accessory; light and earthy that will add a touch of colour to complete the summer wardrobe… or others made with satin cord, for the evening look, or something slightly more sophisticated.
Everything is 100% handmade by in my studio in St Kilda (Melbourne). I love fabric, mostly for the patterns and colour, and how they feel.
I love to raid op-shops and markets for fabrics and haberdashery, so I have quite a collection. I started making bags as a way to economize on gifts, but as I made them, the requests followed, so I started making them to sell.
The 'knitted' necklace were bit of an accident too... I bought various different cord to make kimono fabric neck-pieces (which I have yet to develop), but they were all the wrong weight and colour, so I looked for a way to use this cord by knotting it, and making necklaces out of them. They are especially good for people who are allergic to metals or don't like the weight of regular jewelery, or the bling/heavy metal factor, plus they are kind of eco-friendly to boot!
If you are in Melbourne & would like to see my work in person, check out any of the links below for markets that I will be attending.
If you have seen something you like at the markets and it isn't listed. It may because they are sold out or just a couple left, in which case you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm.
