"Thank you very much for a fabulous workshop at Leonardslee last Sunday. It was a really enjoyable morning, my sister and I both felt totally absorbed in the printing process. What a fabulous way to spend a day. The venue was excellent, spacious and comfortable.
I felt very relaxed and free to experiment under your gentle guidance and would love to have another go to try out different combinations of pattern and colour.
It was obvious how much work you had done to set the workshop up, making it easy for everyone to participate throughout the session. Thank you. Hope to work with you again."


Our bags can be made to order, so if you would like slightly longer handles, an additional pocket or popper, then please email us.

Printing Blocks

Just a few of my collection of hand carved printing blocks, including the larger 'Camden Block' , which you can read about in my blog.




The Monogram range are special finds - up-cycled vintage hop or grain sacks bearing initials of the companies that used them.

Take a browse to see if your initials are amongst our collection!

We were absolutely thrilled that one of our Monogrammed hopsack bags featured in the Country Living Magazine.

India - A Journey of Discovery

We're very excited to be returning to Jaipur & Jodhpur later in the year.

We'll be travelling back to some old and new locations to block print using a traditional Dabu printing technique and hand dyeing silks, velvets and linens with natural dyes.

The very popular rose pink, Portuguese wool bag. Also available in amber, teal and poppy red.

Drawing inspiration from the decorative Portuguese tiles or 'azulejos' in Porto, we thought how lovely it would be to block print onto the wool! Using these beautiful old blue and white ceramic tiles we designed an image suitable for printing, had a block carved in Sanganer and printed the Amber wool in russet orange.
Our little block was such a success, we've printed linen and pashmina shawls in teal and russet orange to match the wool.
