About Helen Izzard Designs
My love for interiors and furnishings developed from childhood from a love of sewing, dressmaking, crafts, beautiful fabrics and interiors, passionately encouraged by both my mother and grandmother. Their skills and knowledge truly inspired me and which remains to this day. They taught me everything I know but especially the values of quality workmanship that I use every day in my work, ensuring that every product I make is of the highest standard.
