Tenterhooks products are all carefully designed and hand crafted by the company’s sole director, Deirdre Anne Murphy. Using a combination of quality silks, satins, suedettes and velvets, mixed with sturdy corduroy, denim and cotton prints, she produces a collection of vibrant, luxurious, yet hard wearing, handbags, purses, hats and cushions. In addition to this she also produces a limited range of hand woven wool scarves, cushions and blankets.
Jellyfish, oranges and lemons, grasses in the sunlight are some of the sources of inspiration for the scarves; while the steaming process and combination of pure silk and high quality dyes results in colours of radiance and depth.
Straight from the Bothy Studio, Di Gilpin Ltd creates beautiful hand-knitted pieces for her eponymous label and also on a bespoke basis for personal clients and international companies.
After an early and very traditional academic art education, Diana later found more freedom of expression and a more contemporary approach in the very fluid and painterly medium of water-soluble dye. For many years she simply enjoyed this process, and during this time became a maker of unique accessories and garments.

I create a range of contemporary products from pressed wool felt including necklaces, bracelets, brooches, bags, purses, notebooks and cushions. Inspiration comes from everywhere, from the environment, pebbles on the beach and even from the fabric itself. My love of clean simple shapes has helped me produce a collection that is strong in shape and pattern in an array of rich colours.
