Creating something beautiful out of what is already beautiful makes sense, but true skill comes from picking up the leftovers to turn it into something laudable. A huge category that has immense potential in this very space is the textile industry that Artisanns Nest chose to go after. This sustainable and conscious local brand works with over 1,000 kgs of only pre-consumed textile waste that otherwise would find its way to landfills. This excess, considered scrap is then given a new lease of life and one that is long and worthy!
To us, it's the mighty Bean Bags that make this brand! Constructed using the patchwork technique (as an homage to quilt making), these artsy beauties are made for cosy nights, coffee chit chats, book readings or even a laid back workspace. These are truly unique in the sense, each piece of fabric is carefully picked after sorting through a mountain of options. These mismatched pieces are then patched together, the result of which is a beanbag that makes perfect sense. run through their collection and it is going to be tough to decide between monochromes and muted solids or the tropical springs and florals.
Also on their line are floor cushions in rigged, solid and ikat patterns, woolen cushion covers (again made of upcycled wool), and waterproof fabric coasters in soothing designs of polkas to patchwork. Lastly, for elegant arm candy, please pick up their many, many kinds of fabulous fabric bound diaries and notebooks.
