About

Hi, I'm Izzy the founder, designer and maker at Worn to Threads. 

I taught myself to sew in 2019, I'm currently studying an MSc in Sustainable Development aaand have a background in Fine Art. A bit of a journey eh?  Well it all probably started when I worked briefly at the Venice Arts Biennale and I found myself lost in where I stood in the creative industry - everything seemed so wasteful, abstract and confusing. So, I decided to learn about sustainability, understand the core of what I cared about and how it can be implemented into craft. At the same time I started sewing for myself and for other people, and I just fell in love with creating using textiles. This is how Worn to Threads began, combining craft, sustainability and purpose

All pieces are made by me in my little studio in Bristol, UK.

Values

Use textiles until they threadbare, repair, revive, and use it again.

Worn to Threads is a slow fashion and object brand. Designs are made to travel through the seasons and through out the years.

Upcycled materials           Second Hand Fabrics          Offcuts                 Deadstock

I love waste. Using discarded and unwanted textiles to create new garments and objects. You’ll find me rummaging in charity shops, car boots, antique shops, your cupboard... There’s no need to use new materials when so many beautiful fabrics already exist. Adopting circular techniques using waste materials and regenerating them to have a new life and avoiding landfill. Throw nothing away - any left-over materials, threads and pieces are all kept to be used in special products. Any new materials used such as some buttons, trims or packaging are natural or recycled.

 

If an item gets worn to its threads then send it over to be repaired and revived once more. Visible repairs and patches are stories  to be listened to.

Oh, and F*** fast fashion.

I hope you love your Worn to Threads piece but if there are any problems please let me know.

Ready Made items: Please email me within 7 days of receiving if you wish to return an item with reason and for the returns address. The item must be returned within 14 days of receiving. Items must in the same condition as they where upon arrival - please do one wash or wear (other than to try on) the item. Postage and Packaging costs cannot be refunded or covered as I'm a small business and cannot cover these. Please do look at the images, read descriptions and check sizing/measurements carefully. Returns will be processed within 1-4 weeks on receiving the returned item. 

Made-to-Order: These items generally cannot be refunded as they have been made specifically for you, however if there is a significant problem exceptions can be made, so please let me know.

Please be aware the fabric has its imperfections - there may be signs of ware on the textile as I use mostly reclaimed textiles. I do my best to record any significant imperfections and known past histories in photos and descriptions.  I chose to work with second hand materials to keep waste out of landfill and use beautiful fabrics that already exist and need a new home/purpose. 

Lets talk
