Liz Kemp - Textile Designer
From my workshop in Essex I design and make my bags, accessories and dog coats. Working with textiles I use a variety of carefully selected natural fabrics including silk, wool and vintage, but mostly I use 100% wool tweeds which are woven in Wales by my sister, Stephanie, who is also a WGDC member. The tweed is unique, beautiful, soft, hardwearing and lovely to work with.
My designs are unfussy but interesting and I use the design features of the cloth to ensure every bag is unique. I like to play around with colour, texture and shape and sometimes incorporate appliqué or other creative techniques in the design. I really enjoy the creative process and pride myself on my attention to detail and quality. I try to ensure my bags are practical and fit for purpose as well as being stylish.
