Ping and Lily both have strong backgrounds in the creative arts. Ping did a Fine Art degree and then went on to make haute couture handbags. Lily did a degree in Cabinetmaking, making one-off bespoke wooden furniture (and still continues to do smaller projects in wood).
They live near Winchester, Hampshire and met over 14 years ago at antenatal classes with their first children and have been friends ever since.
After having had their children both had a strong desire to continue their interest in craft and design and at this time they also began freehand machine embroidery. They meet up weekly, to work alongside each other and to discuss ideas.
Each piece is individually handcrafted with careful thought given to materials, effect and finish. Their inspiration comes from their love of nature, walking with their dogs, from stories and their children.
