Philippa Day - Textiles and Leather
I love producing high-quality level of design, detailing and finishing, as well as combining colour and texture to produce deliciously elegant work. A deep love of sumptuous velvets has lead me to work intensively on the process of creating devore velvet fabrics, and working to create intense and vibrant dyes which I use to bring the velvet to life.
Shot dupion silk, butter-soft leather, tiny sparkling beads and luscious ribbons all adorn the pieces I make.
It's a delight to add gorgeous lampwork beads as adornments to the bags and purses, which I commission from a wonderful Worcestershire-based lampwork beadmaker.
