Harris Tweed Tote Bags


New in the shop! These tote bags are made from exclusive Harris Tweed wool imported from the Isle of Harris, Scotland. Harris Tweed is a luxury cloth handwoven by the islanders in their homes on the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. 


This bag is certified with an authentic Harris Tweed label.





A glimpse into the studio earlier today.


This year I was not able to place an order for new Harris Tweed wool. I missed perusing all my samples and making my selections. Luckily I still have several meters of various solids and check weaves in stock for my fall collection so stay tuned!

Update 8/28/13 : I was able to purchase a few meters of single width Harris Tweed! I'll have a little more to work with in the studio very soon.

My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!
