I’m Sarah of Delaney Designs. I make handmade home wares and gifts from recycled fabrics. You can buy them via my website, or you can find my creations in shops, hotels, pubs and restaurants throughout The Cotswolds.
All of my creations are made from materials that would otherwise end up in the skip – for example, the fabrics are off cuts from a sofa company called Upholstery Techniques in Broadway and the coffee sacks come from a local coffee company called Rave Coffee in Cirencester. At the last calculation (May 2017), I estimate that I’ve saved about 3 tonnes of fabric from going into landfill or being incinerated.
I’m passionate about recycling and wanted to write a blog about helping everyone out there to do their bit for the environment. Every few weeks, I’ll be aiming to post projects, tips, advice and round ups on all things upcycling. Happy reading and do get in touch if there’s something in particular you’d like me to look into and write about.
