Keepers Makers is the mother and daugther team (with a lot of help from all the family) who design and make a range of textile homeware and accessories from rescued textile waste. All hand printed, hand sewn and handmade by the two of us in a coastal town, Watchet, in Somerset.
Our Mission to Rescue Fabric
Textiles is such a valueable material! So much energy has been invested in it to grow it, weave it, dye it and sew it that we really hate to see it wasted. Over the years we have developed our own sorting system so that we can use different conditions of fabric for different projects. I suppose this is why we have quite a range of products that we can make because this helps us use all sorts of fabric. The recent addition of the braided rugs means we can now recycle bobbly, stained and worn fabric because once it has been cut into strips all you see in the colour. At the moment friends and family discarding their old clothes, bedding, curtains and more (that are too damaged for charity shops) keeps us well stocked of material we can use. We would love to get to the point where we are making and selling more so that we can recycle even more fabric!
