in love with William Morris and have most unusual and original souvenirs from V&A Museum – textile examples with his designs from his daughter May Morris Studio (from V&A archives). here is only one page with them, i’ve get actually two and whole bunch of double examples. V&A souvenir shop has them in different numbers and sizes, so you can buy a special one that suits you. i think it’s one of most beautiful and unexpected souvenirs that you can find in museum shops.

What can you do with your surplus fabric after an order has been completed?

Sometimes you end up with extra fabric after your order has been completed - this can be due to so many different factors but its always good to remember that the Textile “waste” is only “waste” for its original purpose. When the material is wasted so are the resources, both natural and labour, which were invested and embedded into the fabric. 

We always want to find ways to “re-purpose” the fabrics for our clients after an order has been completed by offering ways to cut new products and find new possibilities from the fabrics. In addition, by up-cycling unused and redundant textile surplus materials, you can give these materials additional value which prevents it from being down-cycled or discarded.

One example of this is the fabrics we had left from Sarah Rich Harrion's  Assemble apparel orders. 
From the off-cuts from Sarah’s STOCKHOLM SHOOT Assemble LIV dress we were able to create some beautifully printed Assemble tote bags. Same linen fabrics but two completely different end products and purposes.

as i look at ancient textiles from the middle east, asia, and americas, i realize how much more colorful and vibrant our ancient world was compared to this synthetic commodified modernity… humans walking around in beautifully handcrafted and vivid garments, brown bodies painted with gold and silver and black, homes filled with cloths of intricate prints and patterns and pottery and painted exteriors… a pride in perfection and organic geometry and respect for the earth.. i realize more of the finer items we find still preserved today belonged to the high classes as certain materials were very expensive, but weaving specifically was something very special in some cultures and accessible for everyone, and all of the colors we see were dyes found in nature….💭
