Vikki Lafford Garside hand crafted fabric brooches
Beautifully realistic fabric brooches inspired by British garden visitors
Growing up in rural Oxfordshire Vikki Lafford Garside had an appreciation for the countryside and a fascination with nature and wildlife. This love of nature and a passion for art and textiles led her to achieve a degree in Embroidery, followed by a Master’s degree in Textile design in 2006. Since then she has worked as a designer-maker of textile accessories.
Vikki’s designs develop from initial drawings and studies which then pass through many different processes of dye, print, stitch, cutwork and heat manipulation to create unique and entirely wearable, decorative and colourful textile accessories for you to wear and treasure.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
