If you love handbags that are awash with textures yet offer a classic design and hand stitched detailing, you will love Fibre and Hide handbags – we do!
After studying Textile Design and specialising in woven textiles, Geri, the powerhouse behind Fibre and Hide handbags launched her first range.
“Fibre and Hide was set up soon after I graduated from Falmouth University in 2013. Coming from an artistic family, I have always been fascinated with fashion and fabrics. My final collection at University was based around women’s fashion where I experimented a lot weaving with leather and yarn. I then bought my first hand loom soon after graduating, and the rest is history!”
All Fibre and Hide products are designed and entirely handmade from a studio in Yorkshire. All the fabrics are woven on a hand loom. Fibre and Hide are proud to support local suppliers, with the yarns used to make their fabrics being sourced just 5 miles down the road from their studio! All Fibre and Hide pieces are made by combining hand made fabrics with the finest Italian leathers. It can be challenging working with two completely different mediums but the outcome is a collection of beautiful hand crafted and unique pieces.
Expect some exciting new products in their Autumn/Winter 2016/17 collection and possibly some mens accessories, phone and tablet cases. For now, you will just have to make do with their gorgeous handbags!
