THE STORY OF OUR NEW VENTURE
As a silk artist, I keep an eye on what is happening in the world of silk. I discovered Eco Printing or Botanical Printing and I was hooked. Instead of using silk dyes and my paintbrush I use natural dyes and plants with a dash of Chemistry. It is all about slow fashion, going back to nature and sustainability. As such, it’s a “thing” to use preloved silks so you are not adding to the mountain of waste and destruction caused by the Fashion Industry.
So, off I went to seek out some preloved silk and could not believe the amount of discarded clothing and waste that I came across. I was so horrified that I was compelled to do something about it and so, by accident, I started a new business, Sustainable Silks. I now rescue the silk clothing to eco print or paint and sell it on to happy, brand new owners. As 20 tonnes of textiles go to landfill every single day, I have started to rescue Designer labels as well. The beautiful nature that inspires all my work cannot thrive on landfill, so although there is a different “vibe” to that of hand-painted silk, it makes complete sense to me, and I hope to you.
