It all started when I organised our wardrobe at home and the idea came up to make something new out of the discarded clothes, some of whom were full of stories and memories which would always keep me from throwing them out. So I sewed the first pair of trousers for my little one out of my boyfriend’s old shirt. With this first design in hand, I decided to offer an upcycling service for parents that will turn their old favourite clothes into a new piece for their child, which will carry its very special own story.
My ready-to-wear collection for children has since expanded to a rucksack collection for both kids and adults crafted from discarded fabric and cork. More recently, I’ve started to design and make colourful hand-dyed cork bags and purses.
