Hannah and I try to design as much as possible using recycled acrylic which we spray ourselves to get the perfect colour. Unfortunately buying recycled acrylic in the UK is quite difficult, there are very few suppliers that stock colours we could use and if they do, they require you to buy in bulk which is unsustainable for many small businesses. In the future, we hope buying recycled materials becomes more accessible but for now we have decided to make our own recycled material!
We bought a hydraulic heat press a few years ago and have been working on our process ever since with some help from Luce at Offcut Studio who has given us some great advice. Luce runs her own workshops and can also help other brands who want to learn more about adoping a closed loop acrylic process.
