Our Story



After an eclectic & varied career I decided to take a deep breath & go backpacking around India & Nepal. From dancing in Spain to body piercing in England, from hostessing for Michael Caine to being Stevie Nicks in Fleetwood Bac, I thought it was time to don my backpack once again & go on another adventure. Who would have known that this wonderful & exciting trip was going to change the course of my life & career & has become the one and only Patchouli Fair!

What began over 10 years ago as a small business selling wallhangings on market stalls & festivals, has evolved into a fabulous enterprise supplying over 100 independent retail outlets in UK & Europe, whilst supporting desert tribes, small factories & co-operatives in Mother India.

By designing my own fair trade & feminine vintage inspired clothing, accessories, gifts & home furnishings, Patchouli Fair has secured a prominent position in some of the most beautiful & unique shops that the UK has to offer.

My dresses have even been seen on Come Dine with Me, Channel 4 when I proceeded to take part & win the £1000 prize!

Romantic, bohemian, enchanting, gorgeous & free spirited are just some of the words that capture the true essence of Patchouli Fair…
