Gertrude Anna

Patchwork Gertrude Anna bags

Gertrude Anna is an exciting new design company run by Mr. Timmy White. Named after and inspired by his granny Gerty, Timmy models his company on the make do and mend philosophy of yesteryear with a modern twist. Sourcing different vintage fabrics and embellishments each design is a one-off (I'm particularly enjoying the Star Wars bag) which makes it that wee bit more special! This is only a small sampling of his work! Having a creative background in interior and set design Timmy also re-styles furniture and makes retro cushions click here to see the rest.

What I like most about his work is that you can clearly see the detailed quality and craftsmanship that has gone into making each piece - inspiring to see! His stock will be appearing in a few shops soon so watch this space.....
