Rag Makers is a mother and daughter practice, inspired by the women in our family who spent their lives working in the rag trade, recycling woollen cloth in Ossett, West Yorkshire. We work with local mills to design, make and source a range of environmentally conscious fabrics, which we use to make our textile accessories.
From weaving bespoke lengths of cloth using pre-consumer waste yarns to working with fabric off-cuts from local mills, we offer a range of hand made, sustainable products.
Our accessories are characterised by a tonal, muted palette with bright pops of contrast colour and are very tactile due to the materials used. All our products are designed, made and finished by hand in our studio in West Yorkshire.
"The Rag Makers have a really interesting story, we loved reading about the provenance of their products using waste materials and combining with their family heritage to create a range of unique products"
