Thank you for your comments, I am heart broken not to be able to produce my bags anymore and will be taking time out to concentrate on this illness and then see how things are there after.

Beautiful products including the bags made to order from Harris Tweed. The owner has a real passion for what she does and it comes across very well How lovely to see a product that is individual and not mass produced!

We made a trip out here. It was worth the detour! The purses are lovely and really wish I could make use of one. Since I didn't think I'd use one, I bought a beautiful pillow instead.

Terrific little gem nestled in the Skye countryside, recommended to us by our B&B hostess. Beautiful handmade textile products of incredible quality - purses, rugs, scarves and more. You can treat yourself to a special locally-made gift - something to remember your Skye travel adventure.
