Reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose #notforlandfill We upcycle the good parts of textiles destined for the ragman.

Recycling has been in my blood. I was brought up knowing not to waste. Now, more than ever, I believe in #notforlandfill.

When my children were born in the early 90s I made them coats from clothing bought at jumble sales. I continue to use garments and household textiles discarded by our throw away society and repurpose them, giving new life to fab fabrics.

I also use coffee sacks that were used to transport unroasted coffee beans to roasters in the UK.

I often get clothing and household textiles donated for my use. Sometimes they are too good to chop up so we pass them on to charity shops to sell. I've also inherited several boxes of vintage dresses which I'm trying to find homes for rather than chop up.

I aim to make a positive impact and a small footprint.
