Upcycled Scrunchies

Yesterday, I launched everyone's favourite hair accessory - the scrunchie. 

For months, I have been brainstorming different things/products we could make from fabric scraps that I have accumulated over the past 4 years of business - and trust me on this, there's a lotttt!

So far, I have made a couple floor pillows for my little fur babies, and some other little projects here and there. 

For me, scrunchies are definitely my favourite hair accessory - so why not share them with you guys? 

They will only be ever made from scrap fabrics that would otherwise be thrown into landfills - making just a tad of a difference in a world of fast fashion. 

" Fast Fashion; can be defined as cheap, trendy clothing, that samples ideas from the catwalk or celebrity culture and turns them into garments in high street stores at breakneck speed to meet consumer demand. The idea is to get the newest styles on the market as fast as possible, so shoppers can snap them up while they are still at the height of their popularity, and then, sadly, discard them after a few wears. It plays into the idea that outfit repeating is a fashion faux pas, and that if you want to stay relevant, you have to sport the latest looks as they happen. It forms a key part of the toxic system of overproduction and consumption that has made fashion one of the largest polluters in the world. "
