ABOUT US

Piece-Makers is an e-tail store selling a small range of beautiful products sourced locally and from around the world. Everything we sell is something we want to live with and use everyday.  Our range is small because we believe in quality over quantity. The collection is evolving and we are always on the look out for things that help us make the world and our lives a little more beautiful.

Imogen & Elsa Hosford

Support Crew / our world

Our two super-cool little (actually not so little) girls. Aged 13 and 10, it was these two who persuaded me to take the leap and start importing the beautiful leather goods from Italy - mainly so I would have a reason to take them back there!

Maggie

The Muse

It is Maggie's picture you see at the top there. Designed by Aaron at Font Design, she is our muse and inspiration. 
She spurns throw-awayism and is all about true beauty, the kind that does not fade with age but rather improves with the passing of time.
