Handbags & Home

Heidi Burton is a former Royal Air Force photographer, turned bag maker!  After leaving the RAF in 2012, her sewing hobby accidentally turned into a business and Handbags and Home was born (alongside her work as a freelance photographer!).  She loves to use special fabrics, in particular Harris Tweed, which has such a wonderful, unique heritage, and Heidi sources all her Harris Tweeds direct from the weavers in the Outer Hebrides, who produce the cloth in their own homes, using traditional manual looms and methods.  As well as the Harris Tweed, Heidi also works with military uniform, upcycling people’s old uniforms, turning them into lovely handbags, a beautiful memento of military service.
