The Upstyled Threads product range is created with recycled or reclaimed materials allowing customers to purchase a unique and sustainable product.
Christine says “my entire product range is influenced by my love of colour, passion for spending time outdoors and desire to look after the planet“.
“The process of discovering and then transforming an unloved garment into something fresh is so rewarding” she says.
Her Winter range of kids and adult clothing is created from refashioned wool jumpers. Christine says “I choose woollen jumpers to refashion as wool is a wonderful, sustainable, natural fibre with so many benefits for the wearer“. She is a firm believer in the old saying “there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing“.
With a love of simple, elegant styling Christine’s adult range up-styles quality preloved garments with unique applique designs. Christine says “I have a weakness for Japanese design aesthetics and this shows in my applique designs and fabrics“.
Conscious of not wasting fabric off cuts, Christine makes a range of Snuggle pet soft toys that are inspired by Australian animals. These toys are just the right size and squishiness for small hands to hold.
The Upstyled Threads range is constantly evolving as Christine learns about her customers and discovers new ways to reuse existing resources. Get in touch if you'd like to order a custom piece.
