Our values 

Sustainable

We only paint on vintage or second hand items. Sifting through charity shops and thrift stores is more laborious than simply buying in bulk, but it is worth it! The textile industry isn't sustainable and we don't really see the point in using new items when there are so many great garments just waiting to be found and painted! Our process means that we find some fantastically unique pieces to use as a base for our designs whilst promoting sustainable consumption. 

We also only use recycled and recyclable materials to package our orders!  


Thoughtful

A lot of thought and love goes into each of our pieces, each item tells a story. We only paint things that we think are important or inspiring; we think of an idea, plan our design, find a garment, then paint each item by hand. You can read the story behind some of our pieces here


Affordable

More often than not, the clothing we fancy purchasing is way out of our price bracket and we didn't want this is be the case for the range we have on offer! We try to keep our costs down so that our prices aren't sky-high.
