Hi my name is Louise, I am married to Adam and a busy mum of two. I am a science teacher by training but gave that all up last year to be at home with my little ones. I wouldn't say I was creative to any one. I don't have any formal training but I do like colour and glittery things especially buttons! I used to spend hours sorting out my grandmothers button tin and looking through her jewelry box. So this venture; Louise Warne Designs combines all those elements. There was an unexpected social side to being in a different circle of people. I was suddenly in touch with all these lovely people who make all these great things!
All of my designs are vintage inspired. The materials I use are recycled and hand dyed cashmere and wool blanket felt. All the vintage beads, buttons and faux pearls have been sourced by myself. The aim is to produce a product that combines vintage, up cycling and recycling.
