Upon waking this morning, we were greeted with this visually stunning story about G-lish Foundation on Recycled Interiors, a site and business managed by Helen Edwards in South Australia. A little about Recycled Interiors:
"Recycled Interiors has a focus on health & wellbeing – in the home, at the individual level and from an environmental perspective – believing that design, architecture and interior decoration should focus on the health of people and planet, alongside function and form. We encourage people to use a blend of sustainable, locally designed, upcycled and vintage pieces in decorating their homes."
The Recycled Interiors ethos:
"Buying new things from local makers, craftspeople and artisans who are creating things in a sustainable way, seeking fair trade, and reusing, recycling and repurposing, means not only are you stopping something going to landfill but you are NOT buying something made in an unethical and damaging way.
An excerpt from the story about G-lish Foundation recycled textile art:
"The Design Hunter has a selection of the beautiful woven textile artworks from G-lish, which are handmade from recycled fabric and plastic, using traditional basket weaving techniques. I was given this beautiful wall hanging to borrow so I could run a feature for the blog, but it is so beautiful I am buying it! Don’t you think it is made for our walls?!"
