I produce all products myself, sewing with a mixture of repurposed, deadstock, seconds and leftover fabrics. I use a waste hierarchy so make the biggest items I can first, working down to tiny scraps that get incorporated into quilts.
I produce alternatives to single use items and give discarded fabrics new purpose. My range includes bags, storage baskets, hankies, cloth napkins, fabric gift bags, baby bibs and quilts. My items are all one offs because I work with what is available.
I was a vendor at every Wasteless Market from the beginning, I really felt that I'd found a group of people who felt as I do.
Bristolmade is an independent, zero waste company making 100% natural, organic, vegan skincare products in Bristol, UK. Your skin is the biggest organ on the body and to us, healthy living isn’t just about what you put inside your body, it’s what you put ON your body too.
I created Bristolmade after struggling to find everyday skincare products that weren't made with unnecessary ingredients and chemicals or packaged in single use plastic. So I started making them.

I upcycle plastic bags, waste packaging and fabrics to make unique and bespoke pieces. Everything is handmade by me in Lewisham. I cut materials into yarn to crochet, weave and macrame with, using heat setting for the items made out of plastic bags to create a sturdy material.
I sell a collection of lamps that are completely handmade and sustainable. The shades are made from recycled milk bottles that are hand cut, dyed and stitched before being riveted and arranged onto a brass gooseneck base. Their packaging is completely plastic free and even the internal fixings of the lamps are ceramic rather than plastic.
Kept was created by people who shared a passion – a passion to not only clean up our oceans from plastic waste for this generation, but for generations to come.
With this in mind, coupled with a burning determination to set up an enterprise that would expedite the everyday use of reusable products, Kept was born.
Beauty need not come at the cost of the environment, it should be sustainable, and Kept for Life.

I’m Kelly and I’m passionate about making things using reclaimed materials.
I started Team Sikel in April 2019 to take things otherwise destined for the tip and create something functional and cool.
My main product line is made using punctured bicycle inner tubes, but I'm always on the lookout for new materials to transform.
Inner tubes sit inside a bike tyre and are what hold the air. The ones I use are sourced from local bike shops or customers at markets. After cleaning, they get turned into something useful, like wallets, accessories, or bags. Inner tubers are made from butyl rubber, a synthetic rubber also used in lining ponds and in the construction of roofs. The material isn't widely recycled in the UK, and if not patched or repurposed would otherwise end up in landfill.
Everything you see in the shop was made by me, start to finish. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Weaving Hope sells fairtrade, plastic free toys, bags and aprons handmade by women artisans in Sri Lanka. Our founder first came across them when travelling round the world (with her two small children!), and fell in love with both the products and the ethos behind them. In addition to preserving the craft of weaving on traditional wooden handlooms, our supplier provides flexible economic opportunities to rural women through employment and training, as well as a commitment to the Ten Principles of Fair Trade.
All our items are bright and colourful, with quirky designs that mark them out from other similar products and are intended to help encourage children's development through play and learning. They are also made without the use of any animal product, making them suitable for vegans. On our visits to Sri Lanka, we have consistently been impressed by both the creativity and dexterity of the women making the items we sell, and the ethical treatment of all those... View All
