I have always loved creating beautiful things.

When arthritis forced me to stop working as an upholsterer, I fell in love with weaving.

 

Using top quality materials, the shawls, scarves, baby wraps, and smaller household items that I create are heirloom quality. With a little care and a lot of love, they will retain their beauty for generations.

Each piece is produced, quite literally, thread by thread on a 16 shaft loom. This gives me the scope for more complicated work and even more beautiful designs.

I live in a 14th-century manor in Anjou, a stunning region in western France, the beauty of which inspires me and my designs. As my workroom is on site it makes it easy for me to create, whenever the inspiration strikes.

Making dreams come true

I hope you enjoy using, or gifting my pieces as much as I love making them. Making people happy is a joy for me.

 

Over the years I have worked closely with several customers to produce totally unique items to celebrate a wedding anniversary, Mum-to-be and for the birth of a new baby. I just wish I could have been there to see the smiles on their faces when they opened their presents.

Perhaps you have a luxury silk scarf design of your own that you would like to bring to life, for a special occasion or a family reunion. Or maybe it's to keep you warm and looking like a movie star as you stroll the deck on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise.  What a wonderful thought...

 

So, if I can help make your dreams come true, then please get in touch.
