Welcome to Emerald Moon
Hello and Welcome to the Emerald Moon Creative and Wearable textiles site where you will find my unique and creative designs.
All clothing and accessories are either limited edition and made to commission or unique, one-off items that will not be replicated.
I also run workshops where I will teach you to develop and make your own pieces.
Emerald Moon: Creative and Wearable Textiles is a new Leicester-based craft business that designs, makes and provides workshop tuition in the production of unique, handcrafted clothing and accessories. As the name suggests, this business is more than mere ‘dressmaking’ in that a myriad creative textile techniques are used to make the products distinctive and unique. Traditional printing and embroidery techniques are used on many products with recycled and repurposed materials often employed in the production of my work. These facets, by their very nature, make each piece exclusive to the brand. Products range from finely tailored coats and jackets to creative and artistic bags, all of which are available for sale through my Etsy shop, EmeraldMoonbyKim.
I am massively inspired by both contemporary and historical context, with some creations making reference to my multi-cultural surroundings here in Leicester, while other ongoing work pays homage to my 19th Century roots in rural Northamptonshire. The use of recycled and repurposed materials alongside limited edition prints and hand dyed fabrics not only ensures a unique, one-off end product but also minimises our carbon footprint; an essential factor when considering the ecological impact of the business.
Please enjoy a ‘stroll’ around the site! I’ll be happy to answer any questions regarding workshops, commissions or sales….just use the comment tab on the menu and I’ll get back to you!
