Rachel Ayland

Rachel Ayland hand makes and sells shoes and leather accessories in her shop in Bangalow, New South Wales. Rachel has honed her craft over the past 32 years. She was first drawn to it through her interest in footwear design, textiles and a love of the handmade process. With a strong focus on pattern making, Rachel’s practice is driven by a dedication to creating beautiful, made-to-order footwear tailored to the individual. Handcrafting shoes allows Rachel to create bespoke products from ethically sourced materials.
