At the beginning of 2018 I rediscovered my love of sewing and my passion for making handbags. I knew I wanted to create stylish, elegant, durable, good quality handbags but I didn’t want to use leather so I went on a search for a vegan leather alternative. After a huge amount of research I discovered cork leather. It seemed to tick all the boxes and I excitedly waited for samples to arrive. Upon opening the parcel I immediately fell in love and knew that this was exactly what I’d been looking for. A few weeks later I received my first bulk order direct from a cork leather manufacturer and Corkadoodle Bags was born.
Cork leather is a wonderful natural alternative to real leather. It is vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable, water resistant, wear and tear resistant, stain resistant, scratch proof, durable, antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. If that isn’t enough it is also beautifully soft, stylish and elegant. Once you see and feel the quality of cork leather you will be hooked!

Hi I’m Janet and I hope you like my cross stitch kits.
I have been stitching and crafting since I was a girl, with my Mum teaching me how to knit and sew. My love of sewing really kicked off when I was about 16 and I inherited a box full of fabric from an old family friend. I suddenly realised that with a little bit of time and effort I could have a brand new wardrobe full of clothes that would be unique to me. I was hooked!
Over the years my passion for sewing has seen me spend hours doing dressmaking and making curtains, blinds and cushions for my home. But in the background I have always had a love of cross stitch and embroidery and that is where I now find I spend most of my creative hours – and it really can be hours!
My first cross stitch design was for a Christmas card I wanted to make for my Mum. I had spent hours crawling the internet, but couldn’t find any simple modern designs that were suitable. So I decided to create my own. From there the designing took off and now I spend as much time create the designs as I do stitching – and I love it.
I have stitched all of the designs I offer as cross stitch kits, as I want to be sure that there are no mistakes in the patterns and that the thread colours truly work as well as I thought they would. So you can be confident when you buy one of my kits that it will work out just as well as you hoped it would.

In 2010 I started on a journey to run my own textile design business in Kent. My vision for Lauraloves. is to create unique home accessories that are luxurious, individual, elegant and striking in design. A sense of exclusivity is at the heart of Lauraloves.
My love for designing, patterns and natural fabrics is shown in every item in the beautiful collection of home accessories at Lauraloves. It is important to me that collections are printed, designed and hand made in Great Britain as too many products are now mass produced abroad and lack individuality.
My vision for Lauraloves is to combine essential textile design qualities with contemporary and classic designs to make luxurious and unique home accessories.
