Frances George

Frances George was originally set up in Bristol by Sarah Edwards, who designs and creates bespoke, premium quality, hand-crafted leather goods. Specialising in hand-stitched leatherwork, Sarah set up the business soon after leaving Jimmy Choo Couture in London, where she worked for a year and a half.

But when her partner settled in a new job in Taunton, the couple decided to move closer to his work and so Sarah opted to relocate her business to Somerset too.

Inward investment organisation Somerset 3D was initially recommended by contacts at her partner's work, so she got in touch and had a chat about her requirements. As a result and thanks to a comprehensive knowledge of the area and facilities, Somerset 3D was able to assist by suggesting a number of suitable locations.Sarah's studio is now based at the creative hub that is the Willows and Wetlands Visitor Centre in Stoke St Gregory, just outside Taunton. She says that she is enjoying the atmosphere and benefits that the Somerset community brings to both her and her business.
