Plum & Belle
Compton shopper is named for the beautiful William Morris design used to make this shopper. This is limited-edition, crafted from a piece of vintage fabric that has aged beautifully, softening and fading slightly through its lifetime.
We worked out the size of Compton shopper so that there was zero waste fabric left at the end of the making process, which feels very satisfying. It's lightweight but sturdy. Cut and stitched by hand in London with great care, especially for us.
Our values and this product:
- Natural materials
- Limited edition
- Minimal waste, pollutants and emissions
- Made in the UK
One-off or highly limited edition items created from post-project interiors fabrics, antique and vintage textiles that are no longer usable as a whole plus antique and vintage textiles left from Forget Me Not Originals bookbinding process.
Most materials 100% natural like cotton or linen, however due to their nature we cannot confirm the composition.
These pieces are created to ensure exisiting materials are fully honoured and loved rather than set aside as waste.
We start making larger items like the dresses and patchwork quilts. As the textiles offcuts get smaller so do the projects. To use the smaller left-overs we have created items like our facial wipes.
These are all part of our 'Low Waste to Zero Waste' journey.
