Summer Textiles

With summer having finally arrived, these bold, vibrant brooches and necklaces are the perfect accompaniment to a summer wardrobe full of bright colours and eye catching floral patterns. Whilst our new bird hangings can add colour and life to a room without being overwhelming.
Since she can remember, Rachel has collected fabric and haberdashery and is fascinated by textiles from different eras and generations that contain past histories and memories. From her home studio she enjoys the process of creating a range of contemporary textile products that draws upon these themes.

Rachel’s work is always lively and bold and shows off her passions for colour and pattern. It is individually designed and hand crafted and has a particular attention to detail, often incorporating traditional sewing techniques including hand stitching, embroidery, appliqué and quilting. Much of her work is unique as pieces are often replicated but no two are quite the same, meaning each piece makes for a truly individual item.

Prices start at £8.95
