The other day I wrote about my trip to ‘Tea and Crafting’ in Camden, and the fab ‘Rag-Rugging’ session we all had with Elsie Jackson, from ‘Ragged Life’. Well I was so smitten with the craft, that I asked Elsie if she had any other examples of her work to show me. If you are into your crafts (or even if you’re not), I think we can all confirm and appreciate that these are pretty WOW!
Elsie and her business partner Kate make modern and sustainable homeware from rags that may otherwise go to landfill. They are reinventing this old (and somewhat forgotten) technique to give it a new lease of life, with striking and playful designs inspired by the things and people around them.
Who knew so much could be done with your old clothes?!
