Silkworm and Cottontails
 Lampshades and Soft furnishings
 by Elizabeth Pegg BA HONS 

Beautiful, bespoke tailored lampshades and soft furnishings

About Me 
I attained my degree in Fashion Design from Birmingham in 1981. Since then I have moved into the world of interior design specialising in making handmade lampshades and soft furnishings using a range of fine fabrics and trimmings . 

I have been trained using traditional methods but enjoy combining these proven skills with a modern twist to create something very unique.​Commissions are welcome from both private clients and trade . 

Whether you want something new or would love your favourite lampshade to be renewed to its former glory, I am always happy to discuss your requirements.

“Sewing is my passion and hopefully it shows in my work.  I treat my lampshades as "Works of art", which allows me to show off different sewing techniques like beading, appliqué and embroidery . I love designing bespoke pieces for clients but also love the challenge of re-creating a client’s old favourite, either as near to the original or with a new colour scheme.”
