The Embellished Handbag

A charity project to raise funds for the craft community

‘The Embellished Handbag’ was an international project in collaboration with renowned luxury accessory companies to design and produce thirteen unique bags to be auctioned for charity. Drawing inspiration from hundreds of sources, each of the thirteen bags has a unique visual identity drawing from the brand’s individual history.

The private unveiling of the embellished bags was held at the Victoria and Albert museum in London in February 2017, before apprearing at numerous events around London. Finally in December we held a Gala Dinnner and auction raising over £20,000 for QEST and the H&L Prize for Embroidery.
