Our Story

 
 

We fall from the same fruit tree as Tinker Tailor who are pretty well know for making mesmerising hand embroidered Christmas and souvenir decorations for some of the most famous department stores and heritage sites in the world. 

Long has our magpie founder wished to tip toe back into the world of fashion and all things fashionable. The idea for stick-able embroideries was born many years ago when she would come across historical re-enactors at fairs who told her that they cut up our embroidered decorations to sew onto their costumes. 

Our team of crafters are hand picked for their unique skill set and creativity. As self employed artisans each piece that we make and sell helps support and preserve this age old traditional art form in India.

We would love to see how you use our patches on insta or email them to us to publish them in our soon to launch ‘as seen on’ page.

Caroline established Tinker Tailor in 2009 after being head hunted for her signature style. She saw a gap in the market to create the most embellished fashion forward decorations and the rest as they say is history.

As a child Caroline’s love of fashion and eclectic style was instant, playing shop in her grandparents army surplus stores and her mother & aunts'  designer clothes shop encouraged her creativity and love of design and embellishments from the very practical to the very frivolous. This combined with a 2:1 BA honours degree in fashion and business and the gift of a 10 year apprenticeship cutting her teeth in the business gave her the ambition to set up her own stable.

Caroline is now a mother to two small children and feels blessed everyday for being able to work with such incredibly creative products and people in many exceptional places.
