Dorinda is inspired by the glamour of bygone days and the colours and textures that surround us today. Designing the fabric means looking at patterns and colour combinations that will ‘shine’ when matched with the right style of bag. Weaving the fabric is only the first stage in a process that involves cutting, piecing and sewing the pattern, while taking great care to ensure a flawless finish in the final product. Many parts are sewn by hand in order to achieve this. Dorinda believes that her pieces shouldn’t just be put by for good use – use them and enjoy them every day.
