I design and makes leather purses, bags and accessories. Based in Bristol I work from my studio and shop, BLAZE. My full range includes corsages, hair accessories, small coin purses, large purses, clutch bags and handbags.
Every piece created is cut and assembled by hand ensuring it’s uniqueness. I enjoy experimenting with floral shapes, which are all individually hand cut to create dense areas of interesting texture, maximising the sculptural qualities of the soft nappa leather. The purses are lined with quirky coordinating patterned linings. All fabrics are carefully sourced so combinations keep changing in order to keep items individual. All items are hand-crafted with every detail carefully considered ensuring each item is both functional, beautiful and tactile.
I enjoy creating beautiful containers such as purses and bags for people to carry around their treasured possessions, which are as beautiful on the inside as they are outside.
