About Sallyent

Sales 101
On Etsy since 2007

Quality precision handmade. Love of repeat pattern.

I joined etsy when it first started as one of the original 50 sellers in the UK. I've sold many accessories, homewares and items of clothing online and offline. I scour far and wide to find unusual high quality materials and I'm known for my precision work. Where possible I will incorporate or support other skilled artists and craftspeople. I go all out to reduce, reuse and recycle. I believe there is no need for any more fabric to be made, there is more than enough in circulation already. I also try and shop local. On occasion I will make an exception for a really special piece of vintage fabric.

    Taught to sew aged 5 and haven't stopped since. I trained in fashion and textiles, and design history, and when I'm not sewing and crocheting, I work with museums and galleries and love to access their textile and clothing collections.

Hello and thanks for visiting... I love textiles and studied fashion & textiles followed by design history and museum studies. So now when I have time I revisit that world and get lost in making; sometimes for my own fun, for friends and family, and occassionally for sale. Mostly just because I can't resist.

My work is based on a sumptuous choice of vintage, Japanese and geometric fabric patterns meticulously cut, strengthened, structured, then finished off with a treasure trove of fastenings, findings and embellishments.

I love innovative contemporary design, craft and design history, and especially adore repeat pattern and surface design - with contemporary Japanese and 20th century Scandinavian design holding a special place in myheart.

I've been sewing since the age of 4, taught by Grandma, my hero.
