| COLLECT | GATHER | UPCYCLE | SUSTAIN |

Shovel + Spade is designed for sustainable, everyday life in today's modern society. Consciously crafted, with locally + ethically sourced materials, to combine beauty and function with a unique eclectic look. Mainly a zerowaste studio focusing on local wool and the creative reuse of scraps, salvage, vintage, and found natural elements.

After working in a garment factory and experience holiday retail first hand, I wanted to create one of a kind, sustainably made items that were perfect for gift giving, as it is our materialized culture that is depleting our most precious natural resources.

For those that strive towards simple, slow living our Artisan made, hand felted items are durable, sustainable and biodegradable. Originals include our Insulated Woolly Jars + Woolly Coolly Beer sleeve. Our Woolly Bars are hand felted essential oil soaps, made with locally sourced wool, and hand crafted by Square One SoapWorks, who focus on truly natural skincare.

My desire to collect what’s discarded, to gather + upcycle perfectly usable items allows assemblage and a unique combination of materials and textures which I express through a variety of mediums. Eclectic accessories are eye catching eco fashion and my Salvaged Rubbish Boho Decor is perfect budget friendly wall decor to invest in for your home.

Custom orders available, typically within 1 week turnaround. Inquire today!
