We use every single scrap of fabric we make. If there is a little bit over after making an order or a tablecloth we cut it into something else. Maybe a runner, doek, apron or cushion cover. Then we’re left with smaller pieces which we make into pencil cases, ipad sleeves or shopper bags. And then we’re left with even smaller pieces. Scraps really... and these we use as patches for something bigger, or an arm for a monkey, or a flag for bunting... all lovingly sewn up by our resident seamstresses: Gladys, Xolelwa and Ntosh.
