Announcement   Tatty Gem's is a Bristol Based label creating Upcycled Eco-Fashion and Textile Art. All my items are hand crafted using reclaimed, recycled and vintage materials in a studio topped with solar panels

Each raw material is scrutinised, planned and utilised to create as little waste as possible. Offcuts are used in other creations and when eventually my scraps can get no smaller, they are either used for stuffing or recycled.

I bank ethically and all my purchases from office stationary to that must have afternoon biscuit, are chosen for their own environmentally sustainable criteria. When buying ‘Tatty Gem’s’ you can feel confident that you have chosen to buy ethically and own a piece of truly Sustainable Style.

**** Do you have an item of clothing you no longer wear but you love the fabric? Why not get it transformed into something completely new and bespoke? Be part of the designing process or be surprised..........................
..Or maybe you have a much loved item of your babies clothing or something special that once belonged to a loved one. Why not have a beautiful bespoke cushion made so you can snuggle up to loving memories.......either way, don't let your fabulous fabrics go to waste!**** Contact me for Commissions.

My prices reflect the love, time and effort that has been given to the creation to ensure a minimum wage so that I can continue to practice in an environmentally sustainable way.

***I have been a member of the Ethical Fashion Forum for over a year now and have recently been accepted onto their Fellowship 500 scheme, a collective of 500 pioneering innovators in fashion and sustainability working to take the movement to the next level.***
