Welcome to my little shop - Original Cloth. Here you will find handcrafted items, all made with a focus on reducing waste, usually in one of three ways.
- A lot of the fabrics and yarns I source are recycled from clothing, bedding, and soft furnishings which are no longer fit for purpose, and would otherwise be thrown to land fill.
- I also use new materials, which are created with minimal or no impact to the enviroment, such as organic yarns, or yarns spun from recycled material
- By creating reusable, biodegradable items to replace disposable, non-biodegradeable items such as shopping bags, plastic notebook covers, ipod covers, pencil cases

Apart from this, it's really important to me that everything does what it should - a cushion should be huggable, a bag should be durable, a quilt should be washable and so on!

I will, where possible, identify in product descriptions, the sources for the materials used. If you want a bit more information about a product, I will be happy to hear from you

Craft supplies are also available in my shop. From extreme knitting needles to french knitting dollies, take a look for some inspiration at fantastic prices

I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
