I approach much of my weaving from the Saori perspective (a Japanese freeform and expressive method of hand-weaving). I want my cloth to have diverse patterns and textures, so creating lots of variety in a bolt of cloth; this ensures that each bag becomes an individual piece.

All of my bags & pouches are lined with either cotton or silk printed fabrics. I often use African wax prints as an homage to the migratory patterns of the Summer birds of Uist such as the Corncrake and Swallow.

African Tweed; using the wool to create colourful patterns to celebrate the mighty journeys of birds from Africa.
