Lets Love Our Waste!
Waste is a global catastrophe. But what if we try and use all of our waste?
Our mission is to use what we have to create fun and functional accessories.
All of our products and workshops use beautiful reclaimed leather and fabric, keeping it out of landfill and in circulation for as long as possible.
When you make things amazing things happen: You understand the effort that goes into making something. You surprise yourself with your creativity and your skills, and you LOVE your product - because you made it yourself.
I didn’t train in fashion and design or as a seamstress. But I did come from a very crafty home, and we sewed and sewed as tiny tots.
So, when I had my son and my career felt like a poor fit, I was looking for something different to do.
I had discovered mountains of leather going to waste, and it seemed like a good idea to marry my environmentalism with my love of fashion. Love and Salvage was born!
The workshops are a friendly ethical way to get into leather crafting. So get in touch if you would like to do a workshop or have a project idea in mind.
