Julia Cunningham

Julia lives in the beautiful village of St Boswells in the heart of the Scottish Borders on the banks of the River Tweed. With its village green, cricket club, award winning book shop, restaurants and village shops. It is a stunning location to bring up a family and run a small business with her two cats.

Julia is a qualified Home Economist and for many years worked with adults with learning difficulties until she had a family. In 2006 she started up her own business working with textiles making handbags and Fairies from a tiny room in her home. In 2015/16 her husband designed and built a studio for her to work from, in the their garden.

Julia loves color and the texture of cloth especially tweeds, tartans and prints. You can see this through out her work. She is always striving to improve the quality of her work and keep it original and interesting.

Apart from her family and business her other great passion is bikes and she can often be found cycling around the borders, taking photographs and enjoying the beautiful landscape and historic buildings that she is lucky enough to be surrounded by.
