Every Pouch Handmade artwork is lovingly made by hand, by me, Zoe Simpson.

In each handmade artwork, you might find vintage and recycled fabrics; leather from old handbags; buttons; ribbons, lace or linens.

I trawl the junk shops for that discarded old work shirt or pre-loved novel and they are transformed into a happy little handmade art work, designed to make big & little kids smile.

Each one is completely unique; no two artworks are the same. Each piece has its own personality and each needs a loving home to live in. Pouch Handmade designs are inspired by the weird and wonderful creatures around us, by bold, simple colours and touchable textures.

Pouch Handmade fabric collages are available unframed ready for you to frame how you wish. All collages are applied to 100% recycled card. Medium and large collages can be transformed into beautiful personalised baby gifts with the addition of a name, or initials. Artworks arrive in a cello sleeve, handsomely tied with ribbon and protected by a sturdy piece of cardboard. All artworks are signed and dated on the reverse.

I am perhaps a little bit overly attached to my artworks; I put a lot of love into each one!

I think that’s another reason why I like to offer personalisation of some of the designs. I can then imagine how ‘Otto likes to laugh’, or how ‘Penelope likes to eat worms from the garden’, or how ‘Maisy has incredible red curly hair’. Customisation of the collages is available within the online store on all medium and large collages. Please  with me if you have a special idea in mind or would like a special piece of fabric included in an artwork.

Pouch Handmade prides itself on using recycled, reclaimed, repurposed materials when and wherever possible.  Your artwork may arrive protected by the back of an old corn flake box, but please don’t take this as a sign that I don’t care about the way my packaging looks, I just care about the planet as well.

So, go forth, enjoy the handmade love…
