Remade Reloved takes second hand and waste fabric, and turns it into bags and other accessories. Our products are upcycled, eco friendly, sustainable, handcrafted, and made in the UK. We want to give customers a way to shop consciously. By shopping with us, you are supporting our mission to save fabric from landfill!
We are also saving antique sewing machines, one at a time!
Remade Reloved started life in Folkestone, Kent which is a vibrant little seaside town where there is a big focus on creativity. I've lived in this area for most of my life and I love it. I started learning to sew after my twin boys were born 9 weeks prematurely and I developed anxiety and depression. I needed a new creative outlet, so I got my mum to teach me how to sew and I also started restoring antique sewing machines which are great for mindfulness. I have always wanted to run my own business, and after a lot of soul searching I decided with everything I had learnt about myself, it was time to go for it. I started a business making bags from secondhand fabric. In November 2020, I set the site up to allow 90 other creative people to sell their goods on my site due to lockdown and the cancellation of the traditional Christmas markets, which was a great success!
Since then I have decided that its about time that people could have an affordable way to customise a handbag to reflect them and their personality - and this is why I have launched Build a Bag, my customisation service!
