About

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.
