girlwithbeads Recycled Fashion
Designer maker Rebecca Vorperian loves to create wonderfully unique handmade recycled bags, clothing & accessories from her home in Walthamstow, East London.Each design has its own personality, charm & history, from the very British Flat Cap Bag, to the country tweed Suit Bag and the 1970’s floral curtain Shopping Bag; they all have a definite spark of nostalgia.Girlwithbeads love the challenge of taking existing items and turning them into something new whilst keeping a sense of what they were before. Each piece is carefully chosen and prepared before being transformed. The great thing about using recycled materials is that every creation is unique, so you can be happy in the knowledge that your item is a complete one-off.Girlwithbeads has been featured in several exhibitions and books promoting eco design, including the recent book & exhibition from [re]design called "[re]craft".
The girlwithbeads range includes unique handmade bags from flat caps, suit jackets and vintage fabrics. T-shirts & hoodies customised with vintage ties and braces that are available for men, women and children. Plus, fun accessories like giant button brooches, bow tie hair clips and bunting necklaces.
