Look At This Sewlomax Makeup Bag.  Isn’t It The Perfect Valentine’s Gift For Mummy?

I bought this gorgeous makeup bag for a friend of mine for Valentines.  She happens to be single at the moment and I thought it was such a sweet bag and would make her smile.

(It would certainly make me smile if I received it. In fact it is the perfect gift from littlies to Mummy (take note Daddies)!  I would melt if my kids handed me this and I read the beautifully embriodered message – ‘Sweet On You’).

When the bag arrived from Sewlomax it was superbly packaged; crisply wrapped in branded tissue paper and placed inside a lovely box all tied together with a ribbon. Emma Lomax, the lady behind Sewlomax has obviously put a lot of thought into all aspects of her products.  The attention to detail is stunning.  I especially love her needle and thread logo which appears on the packaging and on the products so you know you are getting the real Sewlomax article.

The Sewlomax website has a great range.  From makeup bags and washbags to stationary, kitchenware and even Pooch Pouches.  All with the same quirky, handmade quality feel.  I am coveting her gorgeous ‘Bite Me’ apron and and towel set for Mother’s Day.  They have such a sophisicated Mad Men vibe!
The website states that all Emma’s bags are ethically sourced and hand finished.  Also fully lined and Scothguarded for added protection.  I like the option to have the bags personalised with initials.  Such a great little addition.  Again, I’m so impressed with the attention to detail.  It really is these little touches that you remember, like the Sewlomax signature bobbin zip fastenings.

I was so thouroughly impressed that I wanted to find out more (and also spread the word) about these beautiful products immediately.  Emma is lovely and readily answered my questions regarding her business…

Your products are witty and sophisticated yet with a lovely hand crafted appeal.  I love them!  Where does your inspiration for your items come from?

“The inspiration for my designs comes from all sorts of places, friends, people suggestions, shopping or as I like to call it market research, which can dangerous on my bank balance.I always have to start at the drawing board, literally with a pencil and a very large rubber. Once the idea is finalised I can start stitching, this is when the idea comes to life.”

I note from your website that you have a strong ethical belief regarding your creations.  Can you tell us a bit more about what your ethical choices entail?
“The process of producing a product happens in many different stages, from sourcing the materials from local farmers to posting the finished product to your door. Each bag has its own carbon foot print I try to keep this as low as possible.”

What is your favourite product from your range?
“It changes from day to day, I usually like the newest colour or shape, because I am looking at the bags everyday, a new design is always very refreshing. Its so exciting when you have been planning and struggling with a new design for ages and it comes to fruition.”
What is in store for SewLomax in 2014?
“So many exciting things to look forward to in 2014, my baby range which is due out in March which has been inspired by my nephew Wilfred, My new spring range which will be being launched in the next few weeks and some fab beach accessories, so everyone keep your eyes peeled.”
