I’m Amy the face behind Mamie and Florrie. I trained at the School of Textiles and Design at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh specialising in garment manufacture. I have worked in the clothing industry as a garment technologist, and more recently as a retail buyer.
My career gave me the opportunity to travel to factories and trade centres in the Far East and Europe. Now I combine that experience and inspiration to translate it into my creative work at Mamie and Florrie.
Born in Northumberland I now live in the Peak District and love to be in nature or by the sea. A country girl at heart I also love the contrast of exploring a buzzing city, travelling and taking in the colour and texture of my surroundings, it’s all research!
