This autumn I launched a collection of winter berets, finished with handmade tartan flower trims and petersham bows, which I designed especially with TBCH customers in mind. 

Just in case you want something that’s extra special, there’s also a custom finished version, including my favourite version that I have nicknamed my “Holly and Ivy” option, so you can design your own curated beret and commission me to make it for you from a selection of nine beret colourways and trims.

I work from my studio located in Scalloway, Shetland which is open to visitors. It is situated next to my large hillside garden which is also open to visitors as part of Scotlands gardens, raising money for charity.

I am delighted to be part of The British craft house and thank you for looking at my shop!  Please note it will be kept up to date and fully sticked with new items as they become available.
