Joanna talks to us about her range of patchwork inspired bags, which are made in Cumbia, and combine cathedral window inspired fabric with colourful leatherwork, and she shares a great tip on how to keep this leather looking like new - so as not to be afraid to use it.
She shows us three ranges; the garden collection; the jewel collection and her Big Cat colleciton.
For the patchwork itself, she likes to work in silk as she feels this has a jewel like quality to the fabric. Once she has made the patchwork, it gets photographed to create the fabric itself.
