pondhopper: 1. one who has taken up residence in a foreign country. 2. one who has left their native country to live elsewhere
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is a darker side to some aspects of the fashion industry where things such as environmental pollution and unsafe working conditions reveal the true cost of fast fashion. The more I learnt about this underworld, the more I became passionate about "slow fashion" a term coined by Kate Fletcher in 2007 (Centre for Sustainable Fashion, UK). In an effort to use what already exists and reduce discarded things filling our landfills, my collections of conscientious clothing and accessories are created with salvaged and reclaimed items to create unique, one of a kind pieces.

Born in the UK, I am a self-taught artist and designer working without rules to find my own way through creative processes. I love to work in mediums that cannot be fully controlled, where you never really know where the process will lead. I have fallen in love with the unknown - where the final outcome is always a bit of a revelation, producing one of kind pieces each holding their own surprises. Imperfections are celebrated and combined with artful tattering and asymmetry to enhance the personality of each piece. Edges are often left raw so they will gently fray and soften over time and layers of visible stitching provide wandering textures. Each piece is a unique creation made spontaneously by hand without patterns.

Every handmade item from pondhopper studio has a heartbeat. Infused with whispers of times past, each has a story to tell, a new life to live.

I have a second Etsy shop: PS hung up on a dream

    Hi, I'm Lorraine. I love bumblebees, dogs, bluebells, peonies and old english roses; oceans, forests, the moors and Amy Winehouse. I'm obsessed with rescuing imperfect items and giving them a second chance! Welcome, I'm happy you stopped by:)
