Handmade Accessories for
you and your home
Welcome to Tracey James Design
I have been sewing for over forty years (yes, I made my dress) and have a passion for creating stylish pieces that become treasured favourites.
Being creative is in my core. My paternal grandmother and aunt were both seamstresses and I grew up fascinated by my Mum's black and gold Singer sewing machine. It didn't work but I used to go through the motions using the sewing machine treadmill. Suffice to say I was hooked!
Raised by Jamaican parents, my Dad taught me how to be solution focused for tricky tasks; he could make anything work. My Mum supported my interest in sewing by buying my first sewing machine when I was 14.
Fabric is like art to me. Some people like art galleries but my happy place is a fabric shop. I am inspired by beautiful fabrics and great designs, a perfect marriage with textures, colours and patterns all playing a part. I have always been interested in fashion and interiors. I started Tracey James Design to share some of my creations with you.
I started making bags but always knew I would expand the range to other items. Each item is handmade by me in my little shed in North London. I buy fabric in limited quantities which means there are limited stocks, but you will benefit from the exclusivity.
So, if you see something you like, grab it quickly as when it’s gone, I can't guarantee I can get the same fabric again.
All items are made to order and can take up to four weeks to be completed.
