About Us

Elephant in my Handbag is a family owned craft and fabric business based in Ticehurst in East Sussex in the South East of the United Kingdom.

Our mission is to find interesting and exciting fabrics and other scrummy whatnots for our customers to use to create unique projects.

We are a proactive user of social media to communicate with our customers and have over 34,000 followers on Facebook and 16,000 on Instagram. The links to our social media channels are on the top left of every page and we would love to stay in contact by you linking with us.

We have sold to countries all around the world from Chile to France, Russia to Australia - if you want references, just ask!

Finally, we know you want to ask…why the name?!

Well, when the kids can’t think of a word we always go… “Elephant? Gazelle? Giraffe?”, so elephants hold a special place in our hearts. No idea why it is in a handbag, though. Mind you, now you mention it, my handbag is a little on the heavy side…!

If you want to get hold of us, please call
