Unique Recycled/Upcycled Clothing and Accessories

Announcement    Welcome to our new look Etsy Shop, We are SlowFashionBus.co.uk! Join our special mailing list at https://www.slowfashionbus.co.uk to be the first to see our new products and receive 10% off your orders online.

Slow Fashion Bus came from my idea of touring around the UK on a crazy-coloured bus, and showing people what they can do with their clothing. It is also about education: how fast fashion affects the planet. To support this journey, I display and sell my creations. This journey around the UK will happen, and I'm really excited to take the tour!

I am a mum of two boys, so I won’t be having fun making dresses for them. However, patching jeans is also so much fun and can be turned into an extremely creative task!

Handmade things are not supposed to be perfect! They are joyful and have their own character and personalities.
I make this clear in my online tutorials and live classes. Every one of my creations has their individuality and character too 😊. Even, dare I say, a little bit of craziness. This is not something you will get from mass-produced products.

I am a big patchwork fan, it is a big part of so many cultures around the world.

I work with different fabrics, I love natural fibres, but at the same time, I feel that non-woollies deserve a chance too.
Thank you for visiting my shop!
Much Love xx

About SlowFashionBus

On Etsy since 2020

Upcycled with LOVE and our planet in mind

Olesya Lane is a founder of Slow Fashion Bus and her main mission is giving a second, more beautiful life to discarded fabrics and clothing by creating unique and durable garments. This is her way to share joy with others and promote textile waste reduction.

Olesya had her first upcycling project around 30 years ago – she took her dad’s t-shirt chopped it into pieces and made a top for herself. She loved working on it, and little did she know that this will become her passion later in life.

She spends ages sourcing pre-owned items from secound hand shops and vintage boutiques, looking for just the right items to make something new and beautiful for you to wear again.
