Materials

The materials, ribbons and trimmings used for each of the individual pieces you see here have been sourced, and if possible manufactured, in the UK.

I use 100% silks and/or man made fabrics - each case or bag is an individual creation and the fabrics used are detailed on its product certificate. 

My favourite material is fine Silk Dupion - a beautiful, natural fabric that oozes luxury. The surface of the fabric is not 'perfect' in the way that  many man made fabrics are, but in my view this adds to its charm.

I love to combine ribbons, braid, lace, crystals, diamonté and glass shapes, and each design evolves, until I can say it's 'Vee Pretty'!

You may have some vintage fabric or a treasured dress you would like made into a beautiful new item. Click the Blog page link 'What do you do with your wedding dress?'  to read about a beautiful lingerie case and shoe bag commissioned from wedding dress that had seen better days!
