Harris Tweed - We are Backing the new 'Cottage Couture'

The weavers of Harris Tweed, in the Mills of the Outer Hebrides, are reviving Britains famous fabric to its former glory and slowly but surely it is once again becoming a luxury product for high end fashion, and thanks to Che Camille, we have bagfulls!!

So what better to do with endless supplies of scraps than to turn them into beautiful accessories? We have tweed bow necklaces, tweed bow brooches, pleated tweed necklaces entwined with gold chain and tweed bow bracelets, its becoming a passion! You can find our tweed delights in Che Camille. Follow the link to have a look at some of the beautiful Harris Tweed garments you can pick up there We are also going to have are own wee bit of wall space to showcase our new 'Tweedage' at the exhibition opening this Thursday.

In other news...Sloans Market. It was fun to be back, lots of new faces to see. Our best customer was a French Lady who bought 2 necklaces, 2 rings and a pair of beautiful lace earings! We tried to employ her as our overseas sales person and while she was not intersted in this full time position she said that she would tell all her French friends about Fantoosherie Fancies...thank you!

Thats all on the jewellery front for today. I (Kirsty) am off to the MOBOs tonight and have absolutely no idea what I am going to wear! I have to go power shopping in my lunch break and on a very small budget try and get a dress, a beautiful sequin jacket (Topshop) and shoes all suitable for the red carpet!

Until next time...Stay fancy!


  1. love the bows and plaits. Brooches would be cool.

  2. Love the chunky necklace - so cosy for autumn and winter - inspired ....!!!
