DIY Projects and Crafts That Use Recycled Fabrics/Clothing

If you like crafts and recycling fabrics, this is the blog post for you. We have put together five cool craft projects that you can do at home. Whether you are new to sewing and crafts or whether you are a sewing master we have something for you. Each one is a green project that recycles something old and makes it into something new. Take a look to see what you can make.

T-Shirt Grocery Bag

Our first project is a funky grocery bag. These cute bags are made from old t-shirts. You can make a variety of different sized bags in different colors and prints. If you want a small bag use a small t-shirt but if you want a big bag use a large t-shirt. These are easy to make and only have a little sewing. The finished bags can be used for carrying fruit and veg or any other shopping. There are lots of tutorials for these online, here is a good one we found from AllThings G&D.

Scarves

If you have pyjamas you no longer wear or scrap fabric in about the same length you can make a cute infinity scarf. Infinity scarves are great with any outfit for any season. You can make warmer scarves with fluffier fabric and thinner ones with light fabric. Not only is this a fun craft but you will have a unique accessory. Here is a great tutorial we found on making an infinity scarf from BRITTANY MAKES.

Rug

For this next craft we have another use for t-shirts. With old t-shirts, a hand towel and simple sewing supplies you can make a rug for your home! It does require effort as the t-shirts have to be cut into strips and then sewn in rows. However, it is simple to do, and you can create so many different rug designs. We found this brilliant tutorial for the project from The Happy Housewife, take a look.

Fabric Garland

If you have old fabric scraps or old clothing around, you can turn them into a garland. You cut your fabric into strips and then tie them to twine to create a garland. There are so many different garlands you can create. Maybe a pink or blue one for a child’s room or you can use themed fabric for an occasion. Maybe pastels for Easter or green and red for Christmas. We have found an easy tutorial for this project from Southern State of Mind.

T-Shirt Artwork

You can use a t-shirt to create cool and unique artwork for your walls. All you will need is a t-shirt and a frame. You cut out the piece of t-shirt you want for the frame and then just stick it in the frame. There are so many designs you could create. Maybe a t-shirt with a quote, your favourite band, most loved movie or favourite place. Here is an easy to follow tutorial to help you from At Home with the Barkers.

Fair Trade and Sustainable Fashion

The fashion industry has been making significant changes in the way garments are produced, from eco friendly materials to improved human rights for the workers. There is still a lot that needs to change but progress is being made and we are moving in the right direction. We are passionate about creating fair trade and sustainable fashion and we want to highlight the great things that the industry has already done and will do. The more consumers that get on board with the movement will mean that designers and high street stores will listen.

The Responsibility of Shoppers

Many shoppers have no idea where their clothing comes from. However, manufacturing and issues are now being highlighted more than ever. Not only can we find out where our clothes are made but we can also make better choices. There is such a large range of stores to choose from where the fabrics are eco-friendly and fairtrade. By just swapping one high street item for a sustainable one you are helping the cause.

Another thing you can do to make a step in the right direction is by stopping throwaway fashion. Buy higher quality items that will last. When your clothing is finished with don’t bin it. You could sell it, give your unwanted items to charity, upcycle into something new or use for scrap fabric. You can check out some sewing projects for greener living and recycle some of your unwanted fabrics and clothing.

Brands That Are Changing

New designers and stores are moving with the times and are adjusting the way they make clothes. However, some of the big stores that are already established were slower at making changes. Today more high street, online stores and designer boutiques are making their clothes friendlier for the planet and the workers who manufacture them. Some of the major brands making positive changes are:

  • H&M
  • Zara

New Eco Warrior Designers

We mentioned new stores are not making changes in they way they already run but are starting with an eco-warrior mindset in the first place. These stores are the future and it is important that we start to look at these shops for our on trend pieces. Here are some new shopping options you should consider:

  • Reformation
  • EarthDivas
  • People Tree

These awesome stores prove that sustainability can be stylish. We can have natural fibers, dyes and ensure that all workers are treated fairly. Not only that fair trade and eco friendly fashion can also be cost effective. Years ago, buying sustainably meant more money but today you can buy friendly fashion on any budget.

We want to help make a change to. That is why at EarthDivas you will find fashionable collections made with natural fabrics that is all made in the fair trade guidelines. You can check out how we help garment makers here and shop on the website here. Here is a link to the fair trade federation where you can find other stores making positive changes and creating opportunities for workers across the globe.

Eco Friendly Fibers and Dyes

Fashion and the garments it produces are always changing. It is not only the clothing designs, colors and materials that are moving with the times but also the sustainability. The industry has a long way to go but many luxury fashion designers and high street chains are starting to use eco friendly fibers and dyes.

What are Eco Friendly Fibers?

Eco friendly fibers are created with the environment in mind. Any fabrics made this way consider the impact on the planet and try to reduce the amount of chemicals used.

Common eco friendly fibers are hemp, organic wool, wild silk and linen. Hemp is grown without any chemical pesticide. It is a plant that is easy to grow and can be blended with other materials like organic cotton for a smooth cloth. The other fabrics are used as an alternative to natural fibers which have been grown and treated with chemicals.

What are Eco Friendly Dyes?

Eco friendly dyes are an alternative to dyes that contain chemicals. Dyes that do not contain harmful chemicals can be organically grown and are much better for the people using them and the environment. More smaller businesses than ever are using dyes that are friendlier to the planet and the people who work with them.

Credit: https://www.remodelista.com/products/liquid-eco-friendly-candle-dye/

Who is Joining the Cause?

Many well known fashion brands are starting to use eco friendly fibres and dyes. Some of the designers and brands moving forward with sustainability are:

  • Stella McCartney
  • Edun
  • H&M – Conscious Collection
  • Amour Vert
  • EarthDivas

What You Can Do?

One of the best ways you can make a change is by thinking before buying. We live in a fast fashion, throwaway society but it doesn’t have to be that way. Before you go and buy something new consider if you really need it or try upcycling.

Upcycling is a great direction to take. You get your new piece of clothing, you have a unique garment, saved money and made a greener choice. There are all sorts of ways you can upcycle, but one is natural dyes. Dyes you often buy in store do have chemicals in them that end up in the drain and then create more pollution. Instead you can use natural dyes and you can change the color of any light colored fabric. T-shirts, dresses and more can be dyed pollution free. You can use a variety of natural items such as roots and flowers. Maybe try roses for pink, beetroot for a dark red tone and even celery leaves to make yellow. The design possibilities are endless. You can find out more about natural dyes online, here is a great article that we found! How to Make Natural Dyes to Dye Fabric & Clothes at Home.

We can improve the way we buy and the planet around us with simple changes. At EarthDivas we are proud to be fair-trade, use natural materials and to contribute towards sustainability.

Fair Trade Highlights 2017

We at EarthDivas are a proud member of the fair trade Federation. It is very important to us to show the amazing ways in which fair trade helps workers and people around the globe. As the year is coming to a close we would like to take the opportunity to show our fair trade highlights.

Disaster Relief

During the last year and well before we have seen many natural disasters. These have included hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and famine. The disasters have devastated many countries including Africa, the Caribbean, South Asia, Mexico and the USA. To help communities rebuild, the Fair Trade Federation listed all the federation members who were and still are today collecting donations.

You can have a look at the projects and donate. The members listed are the Mexico Earthquake which is helping all the people affected by an earthquake. Next there is the India Flood Relief who is helping provide food and shelter to families affected by the monsoon rain. Across India, Bangladesh and Nepal over 41 million people have been affected with the loss of 1,200. The next project was the Hurricane Harvey Coffee Donation. This is no longer running but this charity sent out coffee to all the emergency services who were helping in flooded areas. The last project is the African Famine Relief Fund. This charity is trying to help the millions of people facing feminine in East Africa. All funds plus 5% of the store Serrv sales goes to the people facing this humanitarian crisis.

Here is the link to visit the projects so you can read more about them and the wonderful work fair trade members are doing.

2017 Conference

The 2017 Fair Trade Federations Conference took place over three days in March. It was held in Louisville KY. 164 fair trade companies attended from all different countries including Mexico, the Netherlands, the USA and more. During the conference over 250 attendees spoke about fair trade, shown off their fair trade products, talked about business and where fair trade is heading for the future. It was a wonderful event that brought together people and businesses from around the globe. You can read more about the conference here.

Ethical Shopping

On the Fair Trade Federation website you can find fair trade stores, shop online, look at gift guides and more. The website brings together all the fair trade businesses, their goals and projects and shows them to buyers across the world. If you are already buying fair trade or want to learn about it and start to buy, then this is the place to be. You can shop here.

Working with the UN

The United Nations addresses global issues annually and sets goals on how to solve them. The fair trade industry is a major player in achieving some of these problems. The Fair Trade Federation highlights exactly how buyers and businesses can work together to solve some of the worlds problems. Fair trade can help end poverty, empower women and work for gender equality, provide employment for all, reduce inequality in developing countries, help to combat climate change and promote peace and justice.

You can read all about fair trade and the UN on the FTT website here.

These have been our some of the ways that fair trade has helped that we are proud off. As a fair trade business we are delighted to be a part of a wonderful movement. Thank you to all our supporters this year and we hope to make 2018 even brighter.
