About

ReMade, RePaired, ReWorked

Working with preloved and vintage fabrics has a special place in my heart. I see their stories in the worn patches, the taken in seams, even small repairs (if I'm lucky). I try to protect and pass them on. If I inspire you, the all the better.
My processes are labour intensive and, at times, time consuming. Sourcing (rummaging in the rag areas of charity shops), hand washing (sometimes 2 or 3 times and then air drying), unpicking (in an effort to save as much fabric as I could). All before I make.
There's something quite magical when I open a bag of the seemingly discarded. The history pours out and my creative process start.
