Who are we?


All the people that contribute to Tinsmiths Cuttings are visual people –  makers, designers and “doers”. They like to get out and about and look – at buildings, at landscape, at art, at life. That is why Tinsmiths Cuttings isn’t just about Tinsmiths. We hope you enjoy their posts.

Phoebe Clive opened Tinsmiths in 2004 with the aim of presenting a carefully curated range of timeless fabrics, lighting and homeware.

“”We don’t do fashion, longevity is what we are about”. Phoebe studied Furniture at Leeds Poly and brings a broad knowledge and understanding of textiles and how they can be applied to the home with over 25 years of experience to draw upon.

She still sews…
