We believe crafting should be as sustainable as possible.
Australia alone creates six thousand kilos of textile waste every ten minutes with most of it ending up in landfill (ABC, War on Waste).
To do our bit, we ensure we use natural or recycled materials where we can, and will show you how to use sustainable practices in your crafting.
