Made from a mix of preloved vintage and modern cottons and polycottons. The bias binding is new and either cotton or polycotton. All of the fabrics originate from preloved bedding and clothing.
Upcycled bunting makes a fantastic eco gift, that doesn’t cost the earth and is fully reusable. It can be used as an everyday decoration, bringing life to any room or outdoor area. It is also great for special occasions such as birthdays and weddings or for hosting events inside or out. Go on treat yourself or someone else.
The flags in this bunting are sewn and double sided
They are a wonderful combination of both modern and vintage pink, green and cream fabrics.
There are 15 flags. Each flag measures 13.5cm wide by 16.5cm long. The total length of the 15 flags is 315cm plus at least 40cm on each side of binding for hanging.
I have a large selection of beautiful preloved fabric and I can custom make bunting for you. If you’d like something different please message me.
Please Note: This is not a child’s toy, please keep out the reach of children
Hi my name is Helen. I have always been interested in reusing stuff but after working in waste management, in waste education for 12 years and then with and within re-use organisations I am now obsessed with re-use and preventing perfectly good stuff ending up as waste. I re-imagine and bring discarded items back to life so that they can continue to be used and loved by someone else.
All the items in the shop are made from something else that has either been discarded or donated for re-use. For example all of my beautiful bunting is made from bedding or clothing which I have either sourced from charity shops, re-use organisations or friends and family. Some is vintage.
All the frames used to create mirrors, blackboards or magnetic boards or picture frames have been made from frames discarded by picture framers or from charity shops. The furniture is also preloved. All of these items, I clean and where necessary repair and sand and then use papier mache to decorate and embellish into unique and unusual pieces. The papier mache (originating from wood itself) compliments the wooden furniture beautifully and is really very strong and robust.
To reduce the impact on the environment I will package your purchase securely using both recycled and environmentally friendly packaging.
