Eeeeeeeeee! We made ourselves this shiny shiny tray to hold our biznez cards at markets. What do you reckon? We've got a few more leather offcuts if anyone wants one all of their own 🌟⚡️😎⚡️🌟

A bit of Sunday afternoon foiling! We are getting the gold out in a big way for our Christmas market products. Watch this space.

It might be too early for a Christmas tree, but we've got some great Christmas events coming up! Will share details soon. And don't worry, no aloe veras were harmed in the making of this photo 😂

Half of The Ray had a birthday this weekend and got this fantastic @tobgam mini loom - can't wait to get weaving and wow you all with gorgeous creations (and possibly some not so gorgeous beginner's attempts). We'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of @christabelbalfour's fantastic illustrated guide to weaving!

New organic cotton totes with a block-printed pocket! We'll be debuting these at our 22 October pop-up at @vhaberdashery. The print is inspired by the Rider-Waite tarot and the solar eclipse 👻🌑🔮🌚✨

As the nights are drawing in, glam up the dark with some moody blue, coral and icy silver. There are a few makeup bags and clutches in this rather elegant colourway still available in the shop 👆💁🌃🍾. .

Studio snapshot: thanks to @tmowilkinson for the photo of a sleepy me and a sassy Abi. Our studio in Woolwich @arthublondon is jam packed with our products, inspirational images and works in progress - the studio is where we both work our socks off but also relax and enjoy getting creative. Where do you other makers make? #designstudio #creativespace #creativelondon #londondesign #designermakers #design #thameside #makersgonnamake #sewpretty #sewcialists #howimake

Our Makers Market will feature two different pop ups each Sunday from 1 October to 17 December in our #westhampstead shop. Meet the makers and artists and buy one-of-a-kind products made in the U.K. It's going to be awesome! Keep an eye on our feed for more updates and announcements.

Keep all your necessaries to hand in this seaweed-print foldover clutch! The cool and luxurious linen is reinforced with interfacing and lined with lime green water-resistant fabric. The bag closes with a heavy duty hot pink zip and a magnetic closure holds the flap securely in place.

More glitzy foiled makeup bags and clutches have been added to our shop!
This collection was inspired by the unearthly beauty of the salt flats of northern Argentina. We created circular foil designs to evoke the magical properties of salt.
Salt circles are believed to create a sacred space and to provide protection. ✨🔮✨ Shop at link in bio 👆👆👆 and these past collection designs have been reduced to the bargain price of £15!
