Their website, EcoCreate allows others to create their own shop online and sell their handmade eco friendly creations. Art made from junk, vintage clothes and jewellery, natural hand dyed yarns, upcycled furniture, handcarved spoons and many more wonders to boot are just some of the items soon to be available.
Both Mamas who have taken a more natural approach to parenting and bringing up their children, Kirstie and Charlotte were keen to combine all aspects of their Art and design backgrounds with a passion for the environment.
‘We wanted to create somewhere that really promoted the Uk handmade market. And to help all the artisans and designers who spend hours creating their beautiful products only to lose out to mass produced synthetic products at half the price. We are really passionate about natural materials and and reusing and recycling things that might normally be destined for the bin.’
The websites official launch date is on the 31st March although many makers have items in their shops already that are available to purchase. Along with handmade and vintage items the site also homes a supply shop, containing natural and eco-friendly craft supplies, an artists directory, and many many art and craft tutorials from upcycling kids projects to learning to crochet and making your own candles.
