My name is Charlene and I am the founder of canvas woods.  I live on the Wild Atlantic Way with my husband and two beautiful daughters. It is here I take inspiration in the stunning nature, from the Ox Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. Being creative from a young age, I take joy from all types of art and crafts but specialise in sewing, with a particular passion for bags and pouches.

I choose to work mostly with natural and sustainable cork fabric and hard wearing canvas, making bags that are practical, beautiful and made to last, making a stand against the throwaway fashion that is so commonplace today.

In my spare time I love to go exploring with my girls, learning as we go!  We cycle, swim and walk our way through nature.  As a family we love to go adventuring in our beloved camper, near or far, as often as we can!  Books and board games feature heavily on the agenda here too!
