An electic and unique range of accessories and toys using recycled fabrics
We are pretty much self taught. Made by swimmer evolved from a women's art group we were involved with at our local school.Our work is driven by the fabrics that we find in second hand outlets and flea markets - we find something and think 'that would make a great....' or sometimes we just buy something because it's beautiful and months later, a use for it will come into our heads. It must be in the genes but we share very similar ideas and rarely disagree on the finished work.
Sue and Jo Thomas
We are two sister living on the South coast of England. We have combined our shared love of sewing and recycling to design and make our creations.
