About

Eco-Friendly & One Of A Kind

For a good many years, I worked for Non-Governmental Organisations in South East Asia, (where I hail) as a craft consultant for development projects. My main job being to look at local materials that were abundant, overlooked or considered waste and turn them into attractive and functional items. Local villagers would craft these products to be sold to resorts, hotels or gifts shops in that region, thus generating income for the village.

Nowadays I live in the wet & wild Pacific West Coast, yet In the same spirit, I am constantly searching for ways to reuse remnants, found items, second-hand garments, used or partly damaged things that I can redesign into unexpected items that will both delight and endure.

Some years ago when we started out little company we were called Rumah Kampung which means Village House in Indonesian & Malaysian, and is a tribute to the many years I spent in the various welcoming homes of villagers throughout South East Asia teaching, learning, laughing, sharing and generally striving to be a better human being.

Today we are known as Salt Spring Tweed to better reflect where are and what we do.
