About Pouch

Pouch

Handmade homewares, vintage textiles and trims

My name is Nicola and I started selling bags, accessories and homewares from vintage fabric in 2007. I started Pouch Vintage out of a desire to create unique products which stood out from mass-produced high street offerings.

More recently, I have started selling vintage fabrics and trims. Some of the reasons I love vintage are: it's unique, it has a positive environmental impact, it's good quality, it has a story...you are buying a piece of design history.

I was always creative as a child, my Mum encouraged us to make things all the time and I often watched her sew homemade clothes. I remember my late-father taking me to a toy shop in town and out of all the toys I picked a sewing box. I still use it now! Unfortunately I drifted away from art in my late teens. I started creating items for Pouch Vintage about ten years ago. I love being back in touch with the creative side of my personality. I neglected it for too long!

I think the advent of ‘fast fashion’ has made us lose sight of how complicated and time consuming sewing is. The same can be said about lots of crafts such as knitting and jewellery making. I think if you choose to "buy handmade" you are supporting a business run by someone who puts a lot of time and effort into each and every item they make.
