Handbags, accessories and gifts designed and made in Scotland


Accessories and gifts

I make a small collection of products that make great gifts for friends and family or as a treat for yourself. Scarves,Purses, lavender purses, key-rings, Frumpy Fairies and Cannie men. They are all quite light in weight, just perfect for sending abroad and all made in Scotland. They also make perfect wee gifts for teachers, or people you want to thank They are all made in locally sourced tweeds, tartans and printed Linens. 


Purse/small clutchbag

The Purse/ Clutch-bag is quite a structured purse compared to the small lavender purses. It has zipper coin pocket. 4 card holder spaces and two large pockets that can hold paper money or even a phone so quite a lot of space. They are all fully lined and are finished off with a hand covered button and strong elastic closure with small button detail. These purses make great gifts for others or for yourself!


Lavender Purses

The Lavender purses are simple little coin purses with a little bit of Yorkshire Lavender within the lining making your handbag smell divine. They are made in some beautiful locally sourced cloths and are finished with hand-covered metal buttons strong elastic closure. They can also be used to store other girly bits and bobs


Fringe Scarves

Fringe Scarves are made from my softest wool tweeds and lightweight tartans all locally sourced. They are made with a couple of layers of fabric and added funky yarns and fringing for extra texture and colour. They make great gifts as everyone loves a warm scarf.


Brislin Scarves

The Brislin Scarf are made from the softest wool fabrics and are made with little panels with crinkles and are finished off with some hand-covered buttons. Lots of colour and texture to keep you cosy.



The Corsages there are three different corsages in the corsage collection, Each one comes on a card with an envelope. They are all unique making them a little bit of art you can wear to spruce up an outfit or a hat or bag They are lovely and light so great to send as gifts though the post.



The brooches are individual pieces of wearable art work, and are beautiful to wear. They are always unique and are made from cloth, silk, lace, yarns and are finished of by hand with special buttons and tiny beads. They each come on a card with an envelope. They are light and make great gifts for sending abroad or just wearing yourself.


Cannie Men

The Cannie Men are decorative gifts. The Lads have little kilts, sporrans and wool jumpers . They each have their own Scottish name including Murdo, Hamish and Wild Willie and some mad hair. The Real Scotsmen have a few wee extras under their kilts!! again Commissions are welcome.

Each wee man is unique and is lovingly made with locally sourced fabric, yarns, buttons and beads with metal arms and legs. They can sit or be hung up around the house. Tell them your wishes and perhaps they will come true.

(Please note these are decorative and not toys)


Frumpy Fairies

Frumpy Fairies are great fun with wild hair, little hats, scarves and a bead necklace you cant help but fall in love with them. There are a few different styles, the Tartan and Tweed girls, the Flower Fairies and nearer Christmas there is a few Sparkly ones too.
Each wee girl fairy is always unique and has her own name that reflects her style.
