After studying shoe design and technology and working as a shoe designer in the fashion industry in London, I re-discovered the joy in hand making shoes and went on to found my own company in 2010.
The atelier first took shape in 2011 in the Selfridges shoe galleries where I hand stitched bespoke moccasins in-store for customers. I loved this direct interaction with people, working on a small and personal scale.
When I relocated to Bude, North Cornwall I set up shop with the same concept in mind making indoor and outdoor moccasins, vintage ribbon clog sandals, suede duffel bags and small leather goods.
Inspired by a trip to Canada's Northern Saskatchewan to visit and share skills with cree artisans in 2013, a baby moccasin collection was developed. Each season I offer new colours in a classic suede and shearling style, and special one-off bespoke pairs.
Thank you for visiting!
