As you may or may not know, at Paper People we try to make sure that nothing goes to waste. The large majority of our line is made from reclaimed clothing. We source unwanted second hand clothing to create our one of a kind designs. We save smaller scraps to create accessories and what we can't use is donated to local crafters and community groups.
My friend Shannon Goodwin, designer of Things Aren't So Terrible teaches at Goodwin Learning Centre and recently picked up some sweater scraps for her Francais vivant group.
Take a look at the crazy critters her kids created!
I used to love doing little hand sewing projects as a kid so it bring me great joy to see these creations.
If you're located in the Toronto area and would like some fabric and sweater scraps for crafting or for your school or community group please contact us to arrange a pick up: firstname.lastname@example.org
