About

We hand design and make accessories, gifts and homewares using gorgeous fabrics and trimmings not usually found on the high street. We also hand-curate vintage and new pieces – perfect original gifts for family, friends and you! As for our name, Turtle & Teal, it’s simple really – we love the colour teal and have a particular affinity to turtles.  Plus we’re rather partial to a bit of alliteration now and again!

I also love looking for one-off pieces for the home. Luckily I have a large cellar to store all my finds!  I also have a passion for art and design, having spent many years learning art techniques from local artist Hermione Carline.

She is delighted that at last I’m following in her footsteps. I’m always on the look-out for interesting and unusual accessories – pieces that make original gifts or that can add interest to the cupboards and corners in my home. Occasionally I manage to part with them and sell them to our lovely Turtle & Teal customers!
