I work for a variety of designer and boutique-owner clients, sourcing beautiful textiles and handcrafts from around the world.

Whether you’re looking for ethically-sourced, handwoven and embroidered fabrics from ethnic minority peoples in North Vietnam; wanting help getting fabrics block-printed or indigo-dyed in Rajasthan; or dreaming of having a personal shopper to seek out gorgeous, vintage Berber rugs for you in Morocco, I can help you.

I offer a completely personalised service, working with you in a collaborative and transparent way to help grow your business by offering products at a price that works for you, me and the artisans that I’m sourcing them from.

I travel regularly and have an extensive knowledge of craft techniques and artisan communities particularly in India, North Vietnam and areas of Morocco. Wherever possible I try to buy directly from the artisans themselves, supporting the continuation of their craft traditions.

If you have an idea for how we can work together, please do get in touch. I’m always open for exciting new collaborations!
