Here’s a short video of one of the up-cycled zip pouches that are currently on sale on my etsy shop right now. I wish etsy would consider plugging in a new video tool for sellers, so that buyers could see a listing in action.
The ‘Solar infusion’ zipper pouch is made up of cotton and silk that would have otherwise been thrown away. These salvaged materials, have then been hand dyed and silk screen printed by myself. Then I’ve introduced my other love… some digital embroidery, to the outer fabric.
Over the last few months I have been thinking hard about my impact on the environment. Mainly through my impulse purchases of desirable beads and sequins that I’ve accumulated but not yet used. This year might just be the start of me just using everything I have already, and only paying out for absolute essentials in order to create new pieces,
