Textiles: Tweed bags and accessories using tweed woven by Liz’s family in Wales


From Liz’s workshop in Billericay, Essex, she designs and makes her bags and accessories.

Working with textiles she uses a variety of carefully selected natural fabrics including silk, wool and some vintage, but mostly she uses 100% wool tweeds which are woven in Wales by her sister. The tweed is unique, beautiful, soft, hardwearing and lovely to work with.

Her designs are unfussy but interesting. She likes to play around with colour, texture and shape and often incorporate applique or other creative techniques in the design. Ensuring her products are practical, she really enjoys the creative process and pride herself on her attention to detail and quality.
