Angela Kerkhoff

akerkhoff offers a range of innovative limited edition handbags and other accessories, all handcrafted in luxury fabrics.

Trained as a ceramist, Angela Kerkhoff went on to study art at Goldsmiths College University of London. Further training followed in textile craft before, inspired by her love of fabrics, she introduced her range of akerkhoff textile accessories.

Making use of the textures, colour depth and the sculptural qualities of cloth, she applies a wide range of techniques to design, make and decorate pieces which combine functionality with innovative, sophisticated design.

For her handbags, Angela sources a variety of luxury and vintage fabrics, creating clean lines and using a bold colour palette.  Each bag is decorated individually - using free machine or hand embroidery and various appliqué techniques amongst others - making each piece a one-off, and all bags are handmade in limited edition lines.

In addition, there is a growing range of textile jewellery.  Angela uses luscious silks to make delicate, laced brooches and cuffs as well as soft, bold pieces to accessorise bags, hair or clothing.

Carefully handcrafted by her in her London workshop, each piece is created with an emphasis on detail and quality.  Contact Angela for further details or information on events at which she exhibits.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
