l'uccello open this Sunday

To help you all out in the lead up to christmas l'uccello will also be open this 
Sunday the 22nd of December 
from 12pm-5pm.

And just incase you need some gift inspiration this lovely Victorian inspired sewing Etui has
just been added to our online shop.

It features fabric from French General's 'Josephine' range and is topped with a hand made tassel. Inspired by a Victorian tradition our sewing etuis are hand made in Melbourne using a combination of artisinal couture, book binding and cartonage techniques. It is filled with a selection of contemporary and genuinly vintage haberdashery items and would make a lovely gift that would go on to become a family heirloom.
