About Rachael Rowe

Rachael Rowe’s love of sewing was first ignited when she cut up her mother’s silk dresses to make clothes for her toys. Fortunately, she didn’t get into too much trouble and went on to gain a first class degree in Fashion Design. After working in both fabric and graphic design, she set up her interior accessories company, Grace & Favour Home, where she handmakes a range of unique homewares. Born and raised in Devon, UK, Rachael lives in a small Dartmoor village with her partner, Steve and son, Henry.
