My name is Fiona and I am the person behind Angus & Lola.

Beautiful and funky high quality designer fabrics are my inspiration for children’s clothing, quilts and more. Working part time in a quilting store means I have access to many amazing fabrics.

Ranges of all items by Angus & Lola are limited rather than mass produced and clothing is available up to size 6.  Reversible bucket hats have proven to be very popular with both boys and girls and often bought as gifts. Custom orders are available for all clothing and quilts.
