Hope you find the true love you have been searching for.
We love our products at Zaliwana Accessories. The majority of them are Handmade and globally sourced- the United Kingdom included! Unique products are always at the heart of our ethos.Quality, attention to detail, limited quantities and the uniqueness of each and every product which therefore provides an original and pure beauty to the finished article.
Although we source our products globally, a great deal of thought goes into the type of communities we procure these from. Believe it or not, a lot of it is word of mouth…”great quality, handmade, unique, different, vibrant, small family business, old unique traditions…” are some of the phrases that enable us to make our decisions.
Our beautiful purses are made by villagers in Transylvania, using old beading sewing traditions.Working around the family is very important in these traditional homesteads.
Traditions of mouth blowing glass are fast dying out in Europe, fortunately some countries like Poland, and the Czech republic still hang on to these. Our site stocks this maginificent glassware.
Attention to detail is crucial in the making of our products-only a few items are made in each range. Here, Piri sews some of the quilts we stock. An extremely talented seamstress with years of great experience.
Vertel is a well known Hungarian ceramist. She is extremely talented at creating life like forms from clay
Life like creatures.

I am excited about designing a new range of cushions using woollen fabrics from Melin Tregwynt in Wales. They spin their own yarn and weave the wool.
Their colours are rich, they have a versatile selection for individual preferences.
Inside the Mill where the spinning and weaving takes place
Every season has its beautiful shades of colour, summer just gone has the sky, most of the time a gorgeous shade of blue, a great profusion of colour from flowers and even what people are dressed in! Early Spring lends itself to the opening of succulent leaves, slowly unfolding and tight buds wanting to show off their delicate , yet exquisite colours.
When summer is very sunny hot and dry, these are some of the images seen.
The multi colours start slowly in spring and strengthen as we get towards the end of the season. These photos were taken in Windsor great park in May, 2012, what a combination of colours!!
Autumn, although wet, brings about different flora and fauna. Walking through the Windsor Great Park, it is simply amazing seeing the different colours of leaves and berries at different stages. The lush moss, mushrooms and toad stools. Under each dying bark, log, leaf are millions of mini beasts scuttling away hurriedly , trying to hide from the gazing eyes of photographers or the bright light!
Autumn is simply amazing!!
I have especially enjoyed this year’s autumn as we have gone wandering around forests trying to catch beautiful images of all sorts in sight. October also saw the great storm where trees were uprooted or cruelly branches broken off. This was a good occasion to get close up on those autumnal coloured branches that are usually so high up the trees and sometimes just a little bit too difficult to capture on camera!
Gorgeous tea cloths hanging from autumnal coloured leaves and branches
These gorgeous lanterns show their reflective qualities so well among these white creamy berries with the orangey browny background profusion of leaves.
