My handbags began with various styles dictated by the fabric and as I experimented I developed my own patterns and the Daisy Bag was born. I was always on the look out for that definitive fabric. On a visit to the Isle of Man last summer I found it at Laxey Woollen Mill. There I stepped in to an amazing world of Tweed; the colours of the hills, mountains, sea and sand all woven together to create the perfect fabric to use.
Laxey woollen Mill has been a family run business for over 100 years and still uses the traditional hand looms to weave. Many of the tweeds I use are from short runs which gives me an ever changing range of fabric to play with !
Each Daisy is handmade and embellished with different coloured embroidery threads. This combined with the variation in Tweeds means that each bag I make is totally unique.
