Heartfelt by Liz

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: Scotland   

Heartfelt by Liz has been in business since 1996 and has developed a wide range of unique wool creations and specialist skills in textile crafts. In 2012 Heartfelt Studio from Ayrshire moved to Argyll to the stunning Victorian Railway Station at Dalmally. It is a working station and the Studio and gallery are set amongst the stunning Highlands landscape.
I use a lot of the local native wools and plant material to dye my work. Apart from running workshops from the Studio, I supply a huge range of fibre products in the shop. We have a full range of equipment for many textile crafts here at the studio as well as our own native rare breed sheep. I hold an NDSF in floristry and studied Millinery at Cardonald College and Fashion and design and pattern construction. I have travelled to teach in many countries such as Mongolia, America and Norway.

Heron Design Studio

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: London   

Heron Design Studio specializes in textile design. At the moment my main focus is on hand-painted fashion accessories such as silk scarves, shawls and hand painted silk wall art. As I am passionate about nature, most of my designs reflect this.
I am classically trained fine artist but I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of wearable art. So naturally, painting on silk has come as the best idea. Heron Design Studio aims to create such wearable pieces of art that will be timeless and versatile. Every piece that is created is unique.
Every design is sketched first on a piece of paper. That is followed by colours being carefully picked. After that the scarf is painted (free hand) with no stencils or aids. Small imperfections are just a part of hand painting process and make the painting unique and unrepeatable. Each of the motives created has different technique (metallic outliner or watercolour technique etc) and different material (different types of silk fabrics) used. That is because suitability is carefully considered.

Ingterior

category: Fashion Accessories   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

I work full time handcrafting statement jewellery from my makeshift studio in Devon. Obsessed with fashion, music and art, my work is fundamentally inspired by street culture, graffiti and skateboarding.

Graduating with a Fashion & Textiles degree from University in Bristol in the 90’s, I started out designing streetwear and became connected to the cities reinventing underground music and art scenes. My addiction to street culture is at the heart of everything I do, so I choose to work with traditional graffiti techniques, spray paint, paint markers and acrylics, while using materials more commonly associated with skateboarding such as plywood and grip tape. I love taking these raw elements to craft beautifully designed one of a kind statement pieces.

Kay Morgan

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I design and makes leather purses, bags and accessories. Based in Bristol I work from my studio and shop, BLAZE. My full range includes corsages, hair accessories, small coin purses, large purses, clutch bags and handbags.
Every piece created is cut and assembled by hand ensuring it’s uniqueness. I enjoy experimenting with floral shapes, which are all individually hand cut to create dense areas of interesting texture, maximising the sculptural qualities of the soft nappa leather. The purses are lined with quirky coordinating patterned linings. All fabrics are carefully sourced so combinations keep changing in order to keep items individual. All items are hand-crafted with every detail carefully considered ensuring each item is both functional, beautiful and tactile.
I enjoy creating beautiful containers such as purses and bags for people to carry around their treasured possessions, which are as beautiful on the inside as they are outside.

Based in Whitley Bay on the North East coastline, I work in textiles and mixed media, exploring an eclectic mix of vintage textiles, recycled clothing, paint, ephemera and haberdashery, hand and machine embroidery to create original art, prints, handcrafted fashion accessories and cards.

I am fascinated by texture and the ephemeral changes to light, texture and colour by the elements on our sea and landscapes. I find inspiration in nature and all things vintage, collecting beachcombing and flea market treasures; intrigued by the nostalgic associations and emotive power of nature.

LeChatPonti

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: London   

Artist, designer, seamstress, I make no difference between fine and applied arts. Autodidact, I enjoy working with and on a variety of media and materials.
Mixed-media artworks, linoleum and woodcut prints become textile designs that are screen-printed by hand onto bags, T-shirts and the likes. Fabric inspires me to design and sew bags and purses that combine elegance, ingenuity and practicality.
Each creation is hand-crafted and unique in its materials, colours, play on designs; they can be made to order and customised to your specifications.
