About Handmade in Hammersmith

Handmade in Hammersmith

Making new things out of old things. Interesting fabrics reclaimed and recycled.

Does this sound familiar? ... You have a bag, it's OK, in fact it's done good service for years (it's a bit mucky by now, make mental note not to chuck it on the car floor every time you set off) but really, well you'd like a pocket here, and maybe longer straps, and perhaps a fastening there, and wouldn't it be nice to bung it in the washing machine occasionally etc. etc. A really good bag isn't going to change the world, but goodness me it makes a difference to everyday life.

Handmade in Hammersmith started when I decided to stop grumbling one day and make my own bag. I had a sort of model which was made out of an unusual mustard yellow plastic but was exactly the right shape. Many prototypes later, I had it about right, and this is still the model for the bags I make today.

I wanted to work with tweeds, tartans, wool, heavy linens and cottons but felt a bit faint at the price per metre. So I got hold of some old tweed jackets and kilts in charity shops, unpicked them and washed them, and bingo - fabric for bags and pouches. I now put a numbered card in each bag / pouch with photographs of how it started out e.g. jacket / skirt / shirt. Everything has a story, even a humble coin purse.

Nowadays I source fabrics from all sorts of places - charity shops, jumble sales, donated from kindly friends (whose husbands' shirt collections get regular vigorous weeding), and make whatever that fabrics suggests ....

** the photograph is a patchwork tweed cushion that I made for my brother one Christmas; he has been strenuously promoting it on a variety of European flights ever since, although sad to relate the BA contract hasn't come through yet.
