Lula Handmade is a little brand created by Katie Beeke. I'm a designer and crafter based in Cambridge.
I design and create a wide range of toys, gifts and clothes from rich, comforting, textural materials, along with beautiful threads, buttons and unexpected details to make you smile.
My fabric creations are lovingly designed and pieced together by me in very small quantities so you can be sure your gift is unique and special. All my products are tried and tested on my two discerning guinea pigs: my kids. They are great at spotting details and I often tweak my designs after their comments.
I love to use vintage fabric and often up-cycle and locally source materials in Cambridge, UK. I often use fabrics which have a history and then re-invent them and give them a new life for someone to cherish.
My inspiration often comes from my own childhood, I love the 1970s colour palette and my products are often reminiscent of that era, stirring up a happy nostalgia.
I welcome commissions, why not personalise your gift or send me your cherished piece of fabric or clothing for a truly personal keepsake.
