After a long break we are so excited to announce that we are back at Old Spitalfields Market with Urban Makers and their amazing community of creatives. Last week Wednesday was our first pop-up event and it was so lovely to be out in the public speaking to new and existing customers and showing off our new creations. Take a look at our Instagram reel to see some of the highlights:
This month I have been on a treasure hunt for some treasure and to my delight I found some or more accurately, I made some in the form of my new Treasure Bucket Bags.
These colourful bags have been handcrafted from recycled yarn and reclaimed leather both materials were destined for the rubbish heaps so it is so exciting to that they have been transformed into something new and beautiful.
Available in five summer shades; yellow, red, blue, green and black, and each one lined with a stunning tropical printed cotton fabric.
The idea behind these bucket bags was to create something that put a smile on your face every time you used it. Whether you take it on your next beach holiday or on your next leisurely stroll to the supermarket, I just hope that they add some joy to someone’s day and they become someone else’s treasure.

I wanted to share my February jewellery favs with you which include a our popular Ashanti and Bibi septum rings and our new mother of pearl necklace and earrings. I’m currently a bit obsessed with 50 shades of white at the moment, from faux fur jackets to super chic felt hats these jewellery pieces add a fresh finesse to the outfit.
Have a great February guys and wishing you a romantic Valentines day!
This Sunday the 31st of March we celebrate Mother’s Day in the UK, on this special day we get to spoil our mums and show them how much we really appreciate all that they do for us all year around come rain or shine.
Being a mother myself to a beautiful and adventurous little girl has made me appreciate my mum even more as she is not only a great mum to me and my brother but a wonderful Grandmother to my daughter and nephews and niece. Anytime I need a helping hand she is there without hesitation. She has taught me so much about being a great mum, and I love her so much for all her words of wisdom and devolution to being my SuperMum.
So to help you celebrate Mother’s day this weekend here is an Elisha Francis gift guide to help you choose the perfect gift for your SuperMum.
This Sunday the 17th of March I will be joining Urban Makers for their annual Spring Market at The Ecology Pavilion in Mile End. The Ecology Pavilion overlooks the reed beds of Mile End Park and will showcase 50 different designer makers each day.
This will be the first time at the Spring Market and I am looking forward to meeting all the independent designers and showcasing my designs in a new venue.
My favorite part of these type of events is meeting new customers and introducing them to my designs and seeing them come to life as they have some fun trying them on.
I hope you can join us!
