Designers and makers of beautiful things
A long, long time ago, in a seaside town in the far west of Cornwall, I started to sew. My granddad had rescued an old Singer sewing machine from the dump and given it to me and I found that I could use it to draw. Drawing is my favourite thing in the world! I began to turn my stitched drawings into things people could use, into tea cosies, handbags and purses, and more and more people began to want to use them, keeping my Singer and I stitching into the night!
Now, more than ten years later, I have a team of ladies who cut, sew and sell for me, from Perranporth to Penzance and Mount’s Bay to Manhattan. What can’t be sewn is sourced from the best companies we can find, most of them on our doorstep in Cornwall.
Everything you see in our range starts life as one of my stitched drawings and is hand made with skill and care by one of my team - in fact I could tell you exactly who has made each and every piece (and how they like their tea!) We want you to use it everyday and we want you to have us in mind when you’re looking for unusual and thoughtful gifts but above all we want to make you smile!
It all starts with an idea, a drawing and a reel of thread…

As many of our products are hand made using a variety of fine, vintage, found and recycled fabrics we cannot guarantee that the product you receive will be exactly the same as the one you see on screen. However it will always be very similar and we never use a fabric that we are not completely happy with. We like to think that’s what makes our products special and different and we hope you will too. The mix of fabrics used in our stitched products means that they should be washed by hand with great care in cool water. Tea and coffee cosies should not be wrung or turned inside out and should be dried flat. Our printed textiles are printed on unbleached cotton and are machine washable.
