THE PHOENIX GREEN STORE: Repurposing, recycling, upcyclingFrancesca Palange
We live in a time of great privilege where something broken or lost can easily be replaced at a cost. We throw so much away that could be reborn with a new purpose. With The Phoenix Green Store, Kate Stuart is trying to make a conscious effort to step away from this by repurposing, recycling and upcycling to produce objects and textiles which are functional and beautiful from materials which otherwise may have ended their life in landfill. At The Phoenix Green Store Kate promises to never, ever mass produce, always be quietly individual, retain a sense of quirkiness in everything she creates, and stay passionate about what she does. We trust her!
This handmade baby quilt was made using recycled and vintage fabric with hand quilted details. Ideal as a baby shower gift, this beautiful quilt will be loved by parents and babies!
Kate loves rainbows and loves denim! What a great combination! We love it too. A gorgeous dress that will look amazing on your little one. And again, upcycling allows creativity to flourish!
