Specialising in: Handbags made from genuine Harris and Irish Tweed
Under the name Abelia, Patricia Buchanan works in Textiles, making Handbags, Cushions, Aprons, Shopping Bags and other gifts.
Many of the Handbags are made from genuine Harris Tweed – with some of the fabrics bought directly from the weavers on the Isle of Harris and Lewis. Abelia now has a selection of Irish Tweed bought from weavers in Southern Ireland. However, other bags are made from off-cuts or upcycled fabrics. Each one is unique and can only be found at craft fairs or on the website: abelia-handbags-textiles.co.uk
Patricia will also take commissions for specific bags and materials to suit the client, and could email photos of available fabrics, or a handbag can be made from the client’s own fabric.
Cushions, Aprons and Shopping Bags are made from either Vintage fabrics – showcasing the beautiful embroidery and lace – or from new materials.
