Company History

Louise began lace-making with bobbins in 1992 and developed her skills through numerous courses in a range of techniques. She now specialises in english bobbin laces, particularly buckinghamshire point ground and floral bedfordshire lace. She then studies for a BA (Hons) in Textile Design which inspired her to begin designing her own lace. These focus specifically on giving a contemporary edge to historical templates. Following this Louise studied for an MA in Art and Design at University of Derby.
