Clutches and Purses

pink clutches

 

The Clutches and Purses are made from handmade fabrics, either handmade merino felt or a woven, felted fabric which I make by first spinning a natural mixed fibres into an uneven yarn and then weave it on a heddle loom.

The length of fabric is then attached to a backing of prefelt using an Embellisher machine (needlefelting) before going in to the washing for felting. Each length of fabric is unique because of the random selection of fibres making each item made from it unque as well.
