Paisley Rylance - Designer, Seamstress.

I do most of the pattern drafting and all of the sewing for the items you see in the store. Each item is lovingly hand cut, sewn and finished by me in my home studio in Far North Queensland.

Laura - Repurposing our fabric ‘waste’ into beautiful bags.

Hi! I’m Laura  I’m a chiropractor, a dog owner, a Chardonnay drinker, a colour enthusiast, a plant propagator and I just can’t seem to sit still. I started Laura’s Loot in 2020 in an attempt to do my (little) bit to combat textile waste. Using second hand clothing and scraps of fabric, I up-cycle the pieces and recreate them into unique drawstring bags. Where do I get the scraps from? Some are generously donated, but most have been accumulated by my patch-working Mum. My aim is to not buy any new fabrics for the purpose of Laura’s Loot, and be as economical as possible (is fabric propagation a thing?). Because really, why should we feel bad about re-gifting?
