Handmade Posh Poche II Bead Mat
We are really excited to announce the arrival of our 'POSH POCHE II' Beadmats. Janet from Roobi has designed these exclusively for Nosek's Just Gems. Perfect for the beader on the go! Simply fold up the mat and secure with the poppers to safely hold your beading supplies
A note from the creator: 'I came up with the idea for these beadmats when I wanted to take my beading work with me on holiday or to do during my lunch hour at work. I needed something not too big, that I could bundle up all my beads and stuff into and fasten it closed and not have to take a beadmat as well!
So my ‘Posh Poche’ was born (poche being French for pocket or pouch) as it can also be used as a carry pouch. It opens out to a full sized Beadsmith beadmat and has a little pocket on the inside of the flap to hold your scissors or pack of needles for example, so they don’t fall out in transit. On the back is a zipped pocket where you can store your packs of beads, threads and anything else you need. Five sturdy poppers hold it closed when you’re on the move and I’ve also added a little keyring on the side for you to hang your beaded creations or your scissors or keys etc. A little wrist strap is included so it’s easy to carry.
These items are handmade by me in France where I live, machine stitched and finished by hand. They’re made from cotton / polyester and lightly padded to give body.
I make these exclusively for Nosek’s Just Gems (Caron’s my sister) so you won’t find them anywhere else. They’re available in her Bradford-on-Avon shop and online'

As these items are handmade the dimensions may vary very slightly.
Washable at 30⁰C – I recommend hand washing because of the hand stitching.
If you need to iron them, be careful to avoid the plastic poppers.
These have already proved very popular in our shop & Janet is busy making more of these which will be with us very soon
