I recently met Lisa Levis in Liberty of London, whilst we were knee deep in Liberty tana lawn, crafting. As a long time fan of her work, I found the whole thing a little overwhelming. But needless to say she is lovely and extremely talented.
Lisa Levis, textile designer, decided to launch a brand new venture, Betty & Walter, back in Autumn 2011, after selling her previous company Lisa Stickley. Taking inspiration from her Aunty Betty and Uncle Walter, she launched her first collection in Spring 2013. Combining practical products with modern prints her designs are delightful. Her range includes bags, totes, purses, pouches, wash bags and make up bags.
As a bit of plant nut, and an allotment owner, I instantly fell in love with Lisa’s allotment range. Peacock blue, made from PU coated cotton, they are sure to be an instant hit this Spring. I have managed to get a couple of the pouches and have already used them for a make-up bag and also on holiday to carry emergency first aid around with us (perfect for busy mums).
I adore all of Lisa’s designs, in particular the Licorice Cross Cross design, monochrome and will go with any outfit.
How would you use one? What little treasures will you find to store away in the pouch? Perhaps use it as a make-up bag, or to carry your headphones and Ipod? So many great uses. I can see it coming in handy at the beach, for plasters, wet wipes and for carrying home shells.
They are so gorgeous aren’t they? What is your favourite design in Lisa’s collection? Watch this space. I shall be giving away a set of Allotment pouches next week! Check back on Monday!
