Make do and mend intiative 1943

'Turn every good scrap of material into advantage'

Ellies heirlooms is about restoring this fabric, remembering it's history and making clothing that is comfortable, made from natural fabric and practical to wear.

Ellie takes each piece of linen, reworking it with hand drawn screen print patterns, dyes and sewing it into designs that make the most of the material.
