We embrace the art of slow and ancient crafts to bring you a special collection of hand woven wall hangings. We offer organic and bohemian pieces with a modern twist. Upcycling is at the heart of our little studio and we pride in using only preloved materials. Our cotton cord is made with recycled textile from both landfill and production waste. Our yarn is thrifted or reclaimed from old knitted garments and embellishments are upcycled from preloved jewellery. We also use plant dyed scraps of fabric from our naturally dyed collection making sure nothing goes to waste.
How many times has a garment been discarded due to discolouration or carrying a small stain? We see the potential to rescue those tired pieces and extend their life by plant dyeing with wild plants and food waste. We forage in a sustainable manner by choosing to pick from areas of abundance and from the ground where they have fallen. We collect food waste from local cafes and from home kitchens in an effort to extract that last drop of living colour. We custom dye each garment in a slow and mindful process that keeps us connected to the changing seasons and wrapped up in an endless journey of discovery.
It takes 7,600 litres of water to produce just one pair of jeans! The fashion industry is a thirsty one but also a dirty one. During denim production and dyeing process toxic chemicals are used to dye the fabric and make it colourfast. Then a huge volume of water is used to wash this fabric. These toxic chemicals are often leaked or drained into local waterways contaminating drinking water, killing wildlife and making factory workers extremely sick in the process. By buying denim secondhand we are casting a vote for the type of world we want to live in. We breathe new life in tired pieces by customising, distressing and upcycling. Let's help save some of the earths precious water resources, keep our oceans blue and secondhand denim out of landfill.
We want to connect with those seeking a more conscious and slow approach to fashion. We hand pick all vintage pieces with the intention to extend their life. We breathe new life into special staples that work with your existing pieces and have the ability to flow in a non seasonal wardrobe. Whether you prefer modern boho style or a clean minimal look we have a carefully curated collection that will fit into any slow fashion closet.
