Handmade items & our impact

Our handmade bags, hats and more are made from either reclaimed materials like pants, curtains, tablecloths and anything else we find. These items were sourced from secondhand shops, markets and bought from individuals. We check where there are stains or holes and if it is in a condition to be donated rather then reused for our sewing purposes. New fabrics are also used, but we try and source only natural fibers or dead-stock. Cause plastic aint fantastic even in pink polyester form. We try and use every ince of the material to create a full sustainable cycle within our production. Mindful of the overall influence and effect our waste might have.
