Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to introduce you to Charlotte of Fruitbat Textiles – Fashion accessories that now have a bridal collection. The pieces are gorgeous and will look great for the tattooed bride going for a vintage feel!
My name is Charlotte, and my business is Fruitbat Textiles. I recently graduated from UCA Farnham where I specialised in woven textiles. While I studied I worked as a milliners assistant, this really sparked a passion in me for fashion accessories, and the combination of skills I have learned have made for a really unique business. I have always had love of textiles, and quirky/alternative fashion so my business is a really exciting way to share that love with others!
More often than not I am inspired by my home county of Somerset and its beautiful countryside, especially in my dying and weaving. This particular collection was inspired by a selection of Irregular Choice bridal shoes – I absolutely adore their designs! I love the combinations of textures through different materials and mixing patterns, and most of all the quirky twist on traditional styles and fabrics. This is what I tried to echo in my headwear collection.

Wearable Wings Feather Bolero – Firefly Path
These casual angel wings are an elegant addition to any ensemble! Plumes of dark iridescent feathers cascade down the front and back of your shoulders. Each black rooster feather has been trimmed and individually layered. The feathers are secured to a sheer netting bolero.
Long Hooded Cloak – Lorigami
This is the extra long version of Lorigami’s snow queen capes and can be made in any colour combination. There are also three different fabrics that the hooded cloak can be purchased in – 100% wool is thicker and great for winter weddings. Gabardine is a wool/poly blend and thinner – more suitable for summer weddings or warm climates. The cashmere/Alpaca cloak is amazingly soft and has a deep nap on one side. It is also very warm.
