Hi,  I’m Kathleen and I am a maker of hand-made textile  accessories, all of which are designed and made in my home in Dublin, Ireland. I concentrate on sourcing beautiful fabrics to create practical lifestyle accessories. My main product lines are bags and snoods, with my winter snoods being my best selling product. I am a start-up company who moved from a market business into the online space in 2020. I have always had a passion for fabrics and for making. In 2020,  after a lifelong career in technology and in education,  I decided to turn my passion for making into a small business. My inspiration comes from beautiful fabric design and textures,  from the colours of the sea and I love the of the design influences of Japanese and Scandi cultures. My ethos is on sustainable design and the circular economy and many of my bags are made from recycled and reworked fabrics.  I support the slow fashion movement and am very happy to mend products for customers if needed (I have replaced a bag strap where a dog chewed the original…. twice :-)).

All  products are affordable and are ideal as gifts for others …. And of course  for yourself.

The company name is very special to me and is ‘borrowed’ from one of my favourite poems – The Cloths of Heaven by William Butler Yeats  – which finishes with the line

“ ……..I spread my dreams under your feet, Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
