Preloved Textiles :: Reimagined

Wonder What You Were is a team of two - me and my sewing machine!

All creations are designed and handcrafted by me in my home based studio in Adelaide, South Australia using recycled or remnant textiles, beads and embellishments. Most often, the only brand new elements are the zips, thread, interfacing, cotton webbing straps and label.

Recycled elements encompass a wide range of deconstructed preloved items including, clothing, linens, curtains, blankets, doilies, upholstery samples, remnants, vintage textiles, jewellery, belts, handbags and anything that catches my eye as a suitable colour, pattern or texture.

This eco business is an extension of how I try to be in everyday life, being mindful of my impact on this environment and working to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. I hope to inspire others to follow this path.

Imagining you making use of my creations makes me happy and I just love to see customer action photos, please feel free to tag me in your Wonder What You Were action shots on Facebook or Instagram @wonderwhatyouwere.

You can also find me at local markets in and around Adelaide, South Australia - visit www.wonderwhatyouwere.com for upcoming dates.

Enjoy visiting my shop, and whilst you’re at it, you can…wonder what they were!
