Lisa Gibson Design is enjoying great success with an exciting range of bespoke Women’s accessories. The inspiration for the range came as a result of a commission to make a casual bag for a lady in her favourite colours Incorporating Harris Tweed, beautifully lined and a completely unique design. The bag received numerous compliments and it was very quickly apparent that this style of accessory had great appeal.
As a creative, Lisa takes her inspiration from her surroundings, including colours within nature, architecture, and everyday material finishes and textures. This, together with her love of Harris Tweed, resulted in a collection of individually designed and handmade pieces working with Authentic Harris Tweed Fabric. Lisa has an eye for colour and putting colours together to create her stunning, eye catching and individual designs.
