A distinctive artisan approach to interior design and hand stitched soft furnishings

 

Traditional skills and craftsmanship are at the core of everything I do. I believe that to make something really beautiful and hand crafted, something that will last a lifetime, there has to be skilled craftsmanship, integrity, authenticity and provenance in how it is made. Which is why my furnishings are designed using the finest materials.

I use the best materials from British Fabric designers to create made-to-order furnishings. I love working with pure natural fabrics to bring design and craftsmanship into your home.

I offer a bespoke, hand stitched, made to order service for curtains, blinds, cushions and lampshades and a beautiful range of fabrics, wallpapers and home accessories. Many of the Fabric Designers I work with use digital printing to produce their fabric collections, a process which has sustainable benefits: less water consumption, less waste, and the use of non-toxic pigment inks.

As an artisan maker, I use the skills and craftsmanship that I was taught from childhood, a hand stitched heritage passed on from generation to generation. I draw on the tradition of these skills in my work, and each process is completed by hand, my hand.

From Cloth To Home

Behind every business is a story of roots and pathways, and growth and creativity.

‘From Cloth To Home’ is my story.

 

This beautiful film was created for me by Sarah mason Photography from Yorkshire. Sarah came to Somerset and we spent the day chasing the low autumn light. We dusted off one of my old sewing machines, which still stitches beautifully today. And even though I have upgraded the old machines to the modern machines I now use, the distinct smell of the old Singer as I remove its cover, always takes me back to those memories of that first sewing machine.

I hope you enjoy this little film, which takes you in to my world of interior inspiration for a moment.

My Story

Stitches Through Time

 

Many of us are experiencing a growing desire to return to a slower and more considered way of living, and we want our homes and interiors to reflect this.  I believe that there is a timeless beauty in artisan skills, each process completed by hand, with age old skills and attention to detail at the fore.  And I know that many appreciate both the craft and the craftsmanship that has gone in to producing them.

I design and create bespoke timeless interiors, window dressings and soft furnishings, handmade using the traditional skills and values of the highest standards, that I was taught as a child.

Craftsmanship, sewing and hand stitching skills are rooted in my family heritage, and remain at the core of everything I do today. My ethos has always been to respect the roots and tradition of these hand sewing skills. Every item is made by hand, as it has always been done.

I draw my inspiration for interior design from nature, both colours and designs from the ever-changing seasons around me. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful corner of Somerset, with countryside, moors, valleys and coast close by. I believe that we build strong connections with our surroundings in the natural world and this echoes in our homes.  Our homes become extensions of who we are and the life we have, both past and present.

I believe that a home is more than just bricks and mortar. As custodians, we have timeless echoes of what has come before us in every corner, and the whispers of the possibilities that lie ahead in others. Returning to a beautiful home, surrounded by the things we have learnt to cherish through life, both past and present, fills us with a greater sense of peace and well-being.

It gives us our sense of place.
