Jennifer Aquilina

Designer. maker. embellisher.

My work under the name  of ‘By Quilly’ started with the need to create quality products which were a little different, a series of one-off makes which would give the buyer a totally individual purchase, and would keep me interested by not constantly repeating what I had already done. I do all the work from design to hand finishing.

I am always happy to make something that a customer has seen here but it will never be exactly like the first make – I will tweak it, keeping the original idea intact whilst providing a new ‘one-off’. I source good quality fabrics mainly from Europe and Japan, sometimes using fabrics from vintage makes. I am not interested in trends or quick makes, rather, attention to detail, slow sewing and hand finishing. 

My creations include clothing, jewellery, bags and cards.
