Sandra moved to Cornwall in 2009 and set up her business shortly after, designing & making ladies coats, jackets, hats and scarves .
Previously she had spent many years teaching, writing about and exhibiting textiles. Having originally graduating in Social Sciences, she had gone onto to study for many City & Guilds qualifications as well as a degree in Textile Art.
Having owned and worn jackets of boiled wool for many years, Sandra decided it was the perfect fabric to use for her business because of its versatility, durability and warmth. All the garments are made from a quality 100% sustainable boiled wool, which is sourced from Italy.
There are a wide range of styles to suit all occasions from the timeless everyday with minimal lines, to ‘one off specials’. These are unique designs which feature decorative details such as colour piecing, surface stitched patterns , textural pin tucks, pleats and ruching. In all her garments attention to detail with quality workmanship are of paramount importance, together with a desire to create easy to wear & flattering garments , as well as the unusual, bold & exciting .
Sandra sells most of her work through Design & Craft Events in many locations around the country, and is also happy to accept commissions.
