TOOLS
I use clothes pegs to clamp my jewel shapes into place while glue dries, the pliers to attach the earring hooks to jump rings, which are hand stitched into place with the large needle. The bird scissors snip the threads and cut out the jewels.
BIRTHDAY badge, hand stitched from recycled fabrics and textile off cuts, served up on a hand screen printed A5 stripey card with a matching black envelope. Strictly for those that are loud and proud about Birthdays!

About

bEAUTIFULLY hand embellished, wearable goods. Hand crafted by a lover of cOLOUR, pATTERN and tEXTURE.

d A K O T A r A E d U S T hand embellished, wearable goods.

I create handmade and embellished clothing and accessories. My work combines bold vinyl prints, that i design on illustrator with vintage and unusual fabrics, which are often scoured from charity shops, house clearances and kilo sales. Recycling preloved fabrics is a passion of mine.
I have developed my own unique embellishment technique, layering applique panels with hand cut, vinyl printed shapes, stitching either by machine or hand to create an unusual textured finish.

I believe that handmade should mean WELL MADE. I always strive to use good quality components (such as chunky metal toothed YKK zips in my cLUTCH BAGS and PURSES) and make sure my products are made to the highest possible standard.

Where new, all my blank T-shirts and sweatshirts are brought from Continental clothing's EARTH POSITIVE RANGE which uses organic cotton and promises to manufacture using solely sustainable energy (wind and solar).

HOWEVER, i would much prefer to REDUCE consumption by RECYCLING something you already own, so please let me know if you'd like to provide your own garment for customising.

I have a degree in Textiles and Surface design and worked in London for 5 years designing prints and embroideries for womenswear. Since moving back to the Westcountry in 2010 i have been honing my small business running skills, working for a small ravewear label in Bath. Over the years, with these amazing experiences under my belt, dAKOTA rAE dUST has grown from a hobby to an exciting small business and i feel confident that in 2018 things can only get BETTER!!!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I cannot offer refunds or exchanges on CUSTOM and PERSONALISED ORDERS. Please consider your idea carefully before purchasing. Get in touch with any questions before ordering and i will be happy to answer any queries.

Sizing details

I embellish a selection of new and vintage items.

All NEW items should include a size guide image within the product listing. If you find a listing where one has not been included please let me know with a quick message and i can send over to you.

Vintage items may not adhere to this standardised sizing scale but i will include an estimate size in the product description.

I aim to include as much info as possible in my listings but if you do require more specific measurements or size comparisons please get in touch and i will endeavour to help.

Care instructions

GARMENTS
The vinyl printing techniques i use to embellish my wares are machine washable at 30 degrees.

(Officially the vinyl is built to withstand a hotter wash but in order to keep the multiple layers of vinyl print used in many of my designs in top condition for as long as possible i recommend a cool wash.)

After machine washing shake out and leave to air dry on a drying rack or line.

DO NOT TUMBLE DRY
DO NOT IRON DIRECTLY OVER VINYL PRINT.

If ironing please turn garment inside out and iron on reverse.

ZIP PURSES and BAGS
Spot wash any stains or marks using a sponge and warm soapy water. Allow to dry naturally.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items will arrive gift wrapped in tissue paper.

If your purchase is a gift and you would like some EXTRA SPECIAL WRAPPING please get in touch x
