Williams Handmade

WOW! I think Sarah probably hears that quite a lot, when you walk into her studio/shop. Sarah makes Williams Handmade bags, briefcases and luggage in the most incredible colours and shapes, I was sold on them the first time I saw them online but in real life they are even more beautiful. If you’ve read my blog posts before you know I’m fascinated with makers and crafters, and this year I made a pact with myself to meet more of them, and spread the word of some incredible talents.

Sarah has been on my radar for a while, and during our conversation she told me a little about her background, originally studying at Herefordshire College and then London College of Fashion, where she honed her skills in accessories and leatherwork. After graduating in 2010 she has gone onto be finalist in, The Modern Craft Project, winner of Best Newcomer at the British Craft Fair, one of twelve Selfridges Bright Young Things as well as collaborating with Womenwear Designer Kirsty Ward. A busy year and I have the feeling that her star is rising and I’m so incredibly pleased that it is.

If you have a spare Saturday and want to see beautiful craftmanship take shape please do visit Sarah at her wonderful studio, its a real treat. Thanks for making me feel so welcome Sarah and I’m thrilled with my purse, I had a hard time picking a colour and look forward to seeing your new colour ways and designs in the future.

Look at my pictures! Aren’t they so cool! It was great to be asked by Katie and Richard for some help, photographing their gorgeous girls, Lulu and Hattie for their new business LULUZULU. Their first designs are amazing tights for kids and babies, Richard told me “We think tights are such a practical garment: from new born to toddlers, whether worn for warmth under clothes or just over a nappy at home. We’ve created really fun and practical cotton rich baby tights with toasty terry toes and non-slip grippers in three detailed designs that both you and your child will love.”

To be honest I just love being involved and its always fun to be around the girls, the tights are available online now and come in amazing packaging so if you have a friend whose having a baby or your having a baby yourself why not take a look at their website and keep up to date with their blog.
