Dorus Mhor celebrates the beauty and artistry of fine fabrics through their application to accessories.
Inspired by a lifelong passion for ornate textiles and with a Fine Art degree in Sculpture, British designer Elizabeth Bloom hand crafts exquisite tactile gems using carefully selected fabrics. These include a medley of monochromatic jewel-toned silks and limited edition prints that tell a unique story. The latest collection, 'Fluorite', incorporates printed silks by Weston Scarves. These vibrant prints are created from high definition scans of rock minerals and crystals that capture stunning inflections of light and color.
Launched in London in 2011, Dorus Mhor’s early fans include Florence Welch. Now based in Chicago, our colorful collection showcases versatile pieces in timeless designs that nod to Art Deco.
Scottish born designer Elizabeth Bloom grew up in the town famous for weaving the Chanel tweeds. With one grandfather a trained silversmith and the other an expert in weaving, it could be said that it was her destiny to create a unique marriage of metal and textiles. Taught from a young age to sew by her dressmaker mother, Elizabeth later graduated with a Fine Art degree in sculpture.
Along the way she rescued a few bin bags filled with remnants of ornate tweeds from Linton Tweeds. Too beautiful to throw away, but too small to do much with, it wasn’t until she stumbled upon a covered button maker on a crowded Vietnamese pavement while on a six month sabbatical that an idea was born.
Button making progressed onto bead making - and once a technique was developed, fabrics became finer and pieces more delicate.
After launching with great success in London, Elizabeth relocated to Chicago in early 2012, where she now designs and hand crafts every piece from her home studio.
The name Dorus Mhor (the 'h' is silent) pays tribute to Elizabeth's idyllic childhood home. The Gaelic translation literally means "great door".
