Spring Butterflies Bag

The greenest product is often the one that already exists! Restyling is a way of making this planet greener. Here is a new adorable little number for my line of restyled bags.

Sunday Pick

A lazy Sunday morning, the weather is throwing mood swings (sun-rain-sun-clouds)... Doing my habitual quick trawl through ethical fashion websites I found this fun recycled tote by Korean non-profit design shop, Eco Party Mearry. It is available on Poketo

Earth Day

Today is Earth Day, so I celebrated it by recycling scraps of textiles and making lovely little FABULA brooches with the sun shining through my window. But, hey, every day is a green day for me as I am running an eco-friendly fashion business!

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Hooray! I have become a member of EcoEtsy Team, a global team of eco-minded Etsy sellers. My designs are lovingly made from vintage, thrifted, antique, reclaimed and recycled fabrics and materials with a past. As other members of EcoEtsy I am constantly trying to come up with ways to extend the life of objects, postponing the moment when they get discarded and transform scraps into something beautiful.

Here are a few lovely eco-fabulous things from my fellow team members:

New Recycled Jewellery Collection

Oh, I am so excited about my new Autumn-Winter (yes, already!) recycled jewellery collection! I am using a lot of vintage and recycled textiles, tattered handmade lace, brass and copper chains, old lurex threads, rhinestones (many of them recycled) and semi-precious stones. The colours are so decadent and earthy: bronze, copper, dusty plum, reds.

Here is a sneak preview:

I have just launched my new line of recycled jewellery. Funky and cheerful bangles and necklaces are made from upcycled cotton/rayon cord, reclaimed silk and lace. Pile them up and wait for the spring to arrive!
