Breathing new life into old stuff

Newcastle upon Tyne, England | 374 Sales

Announcement    I'm Kate. I'm an artist and a writer. I make things - mostly out of reclaimed fabric, but I also love to paint and write. And I could never choose which I loved most, so now I don't choose, I just do, as the mood takes me.
You can find me on Instagram where I take pretty pictures of mountainsides, meals and makes. I write for No Serial Number Magazine and will one day finish the novel I started when I was 15. I'm write a blog too, on WordPress, about my journey through self employed life and saving the planet. I love nature, and dry stone walls, paint under my fingernails, and standing with my bare feet on the land and my face to the sun. I love stories. The stories of people, the stories of stuff. I love the idea of carrying stories forward, and of birthing new stories that honor the old. Hippy or witch, maybe both.
Here on Etsy I make plastic free textile solutions to all your zero waste problems. I create heirloom patchwork quilts - commission me to make one for your family! I want to see us as a society, stepping away from synthetic fibres in our bedrooms and go back to the tried and tested ways of our ancestors - layers of quilts and blankets to suit the seasons. Everything I make uses recycled, refound, reclaimed materials, with my goal to make beautiful, functional objects and household textiles from materials which otherwise might have ended their life in landfill.

I promise to never, ever mass produce. I promise to stand for the planet and her people. I promise to remain quietly individual and a little bit quirky in everything I create, and to stay passionate about the issues that inspire me.

Breathing new life into old stuff

So I've been making stuff my whole life. Paintings, quilts, cards. Mostly as gifts for family and friends, sometimes just for me. I loved the sense of history in repurposing and recycling - the idea of honouring the cloth by finding it new purpose.

The dream of The Phoenix Green Store grew quietly out of that feeling that I had to do something positive to minimise my impact on the planet. It was a dream that I often felt would never be realised. But after our children came along, the importance of make do and mend in an ever growing consumerist society really hit home. My little shop of handmade creations was born.

If you want to buy something that's been made with love and recycled materials, then I hope you'll find something to meet your needs right here.
