Have you got a pair of old jeans that you love and are holding on to even though they are in shreds? Why not give them a second life by having them customised and repaired to your own specifications.
This is Brian’s bum. His favourite jeans were falling apart so we added a few patches which gave them a subtle splash of colour.

Repair and Embroidery.
Everyone loves a pair of jeans. Whatever the cut might be is a personal choice, but when I find a pair I love, I wear them until they are shreds. The places that tends to wear out first are usually pockets, crotch, and knees. So instead of getting rid of them why not repair them? Add some contrast fabrics, hand/machine embroidery etc.
Not sure how to do it yourself? You can post them to us and we will return them to you with some added pizazz.
Real Eco Clothing
People sometimes ask me my opinion on which sustainable brand is the best. I say the one that was never produced anything in the first place. Even the most eco brands use resources and water to grow and produce their garments. Choose second hand, choose vintage and choose upcycled. It’s the most eco of all your options. There is plenty to go around.
Here we have my good friend Yasemin modelling for me. Denim skirt made from a pair of red denim trousers. No extra pesticides or water used. Jersey top customised for kids pyjama tee. No sweatshop labour. Hat vintage. All locally sourced made in our studio powered by green energy and cups of peppermint tea.
I didn’t really plan to do a colour coordinated photo shoot, but it turned out that way. Great!!
- The jersey dress in the first photo is made from a black vest top and a red t-shirt that I have added to the bottom of it. I simply cut out the neckline on the red tee big enough to fit around the hem of the black vest top. Then cut up underarm seams to release the sleeve.

Just an excuse to use this background really.
