Kia Ora, my name is Elisabeth.

I'm a woman with many strings to my bow. I'm an illustrator and textile designer - and by that I mean I design my own fabrics, I design my own products, and I do my own sewing.

I'm also an IT Trainer, helping people to use technology to get the most out of their working day.

Somehow, sometimes, I manage to make my own ranges. I'm drawn to strong fabrics. Bold designs, plaid, and quirky prints. For many years I bought fabric in small lengths only (sometimes vintage, often end-of-line designer fabrics) so I was never making too many of the same thing. More recently I decided that the key to really having distinctive products was to design my own fabrics, so now many of my products feature my own original illustrations.

I favour the practical - bags you can use everyday, notebooks and journals that you never need to worry about them running out, because you can transfer the gorgeous cover on to your next notebook too.

I hope you like the fabrics I use, and that my designs appeal!
