Part disciplined craftsman, part warehouser of beautiful things, I've learned that a well upholstered piece of furniture, like a great bag, repays you time and time again

One last reminder of my kind of honeymoon

Lying by the pool dissecting how the wedding went gets a bit churlish after a while, there’s nothing you’d change because somehow it all worked out, so what’s next? A bit of afternoon napping, read a few books, and then.. I discovered the hotel had A SHOE WORKSHOP on site. 

Turns out that whilst in Rome, you probably won’t build a road, when in Capri, you can make shoes. Sneaking a look sideways at hubby snoozing on his sunlounger, and then at my new pink purse which didn’t go with any of my shoes, I decided this was a good thing and snuck off.

Here’s what happened..

Enzo, Luigi, you’re my heroes. Thanks for a great day. Now home, I’ve installed one last reminder.


In case you want to try..we stayed at the Capri Palace in Anacapri. The workshop is run by Capri Touch. Or if you fancy something a little closer to home, we’ll be launching a shoe workshop shortly at Homemade London. Drop me an email if you’d like to hear more about workshop options.

Traditional or modern rehauls, be it family castoff, online find, or holiday souvenir. I upholster, recover, patch up, or design from scratch.


Get organised with custom crafted sleek leather accessories. Every day seems a little easier with an organised bag, work journal, bookcover, or technology protection. Great as gifts or just for you.


Headboards, cushions, blinds, and bedthrows: coordinate the home you dream of and have fun with colour and texture.
