Meet Tamara

Karhina - Victoria

I want to offer sustainably sourced and created art and fashion items enabling people to buy one of a kind items with a very low footprint. I also love to teach people how to repair their clothes to ensure longevity and enable them to fall in love with their items again.

The joy of working with found materials is the unexpected uses that can be found for them. I love this unpredictability and enjoy the inventiveness necessary to transform them. The choice of materials can also be a key part of the story of a piece. The materials not only highlight a need to address the amount of waste we produce, but also contributes to the story.   I try to always use materials that are reclaimed, things with a history that have been discarded and might otherwise end up in landfill.

Karhina Textiles specialises in free machine embroidery, hand stitching and mending. Creating handbags, jewellery and wall art using up-cycled, recycled and reclaimed materials and machine embroidery for a one of a kind sustainable fashion statement, shop her products below
