We have a fabulous range of bags; each bag is made from reclaimed clothing that was destined for landfill. We have rescued these clothes and upcycled the fabric and trimming to create these one-off bags. Some of the fabrics are from clothing that was decades old whilst others are more current. As a result, you may see the odd flaw or mark in some of the fabrics however we believe this just adds to the character of the items.
As some of the fabrics have been unpicked and reused occasionally you may see evidence of previous seams.
The fabrics are carefully reclaimed to minimise wastage and the product is very much handmade.
Some of these bags feature elaborate embellishment work, for the most part this is intact however occasionally you may find the odd bead / sequin missing, anything very obviously noticeable will be mentioned in the description.
Every bag size is different as we try and utilise the fabric as best we can.
Please note that as these use mixed fabrics and a lot of them don’t have care labels hence it is difficult to provide washing instructions. If in doubt we recommend dry-cleaning for silks. Cottons can be gently hand cold washed.
