5 out of 5



I’m Wendy Pettifor and I handmake unique or small-run bags, wallets, scarves and other accessories under my ‘Pohutukawa’ label. The pohutukawa tree is native to New Zealand and I chose the name because it embodies qualities I value in my work being amazingly resilient with flowers of intricate beauty. It also reminds me of the time we spent in that wonderful country.

I live and work in Cornwall and love creatively combining natural materials which are lovely both to touch and to look at. I especially like the timeless style of Harris Tweed and colourful patterns in Liberty of London fabric with pretty (if sometimes quirky!) results. My aim is that a Pohutukawa product will give you many years of pleasurable use.

Any purchase can be sent directly to a gift recipient and many products have an add-on gift wrap option with a greetings card with your message.  Please do get in touch if I can help you.
