This is a sequel to my previous post, Repurposed & Upcycled Homewares On Etsy, which has had lots of positive feedback so without further ado here’s more of the same.  I love putting posts like this together, the only drawback is trying to narrow down my choices from all the creative awesomeness 🙂

RikRak Studio is a home based business selling wonderful hand made one of a kind homewares and accessories.  Each piece is made from repurposed vintage fabric by Krystal, who started to craft when her grandmother taught her how to quilt and sew while she was pregnant with her son.  From there, she has built her business successfully from her home in Ottawa, Canada and has sold thousands of pieces, both on Etsy and from over 90 stores around the world.  (Read more of her inspirational story  in this Etsy interview).

I love Krystals’ work – she chooses the most vibrant fabrics, and everything is finished to such a high standard – there are a few things from her shop going on my wish list for sure 🙂

Follow The RikRak Studio blog, and check out her photostream on Flickr.

Alexandra Ferguson‘s felt pillows are made from 100% post consumer recycled felt, recycled from plastic water bottles.   It takes about four bottles to make the felt used for one pillow – so for each one made, that’s four less bottles going to landfill.

Alexandra made her very first pillows as gifts, and if it hadn’t been for the prompting of a friends’ sister, they would have been her last – but she put them on sale and has been producing them ever since.

Each pillow is made by hand at a studio in Westchester County, New York, so each is one of a kind.
