I believe that to reuse is to uncover what there is to love, and make that shine again and again.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated with the secret treasures people keep hidden away. It began with the Chinese cabinet my Mum filled with snippets of Victorian lace, bobbins, buttons and trinkets. I loved to create stories about where these pieces had come from – the lace from the hem of a feisty suffragette or the button from a soldier’s coat kept by his sweetheart.
This passion never left me, and I have been busy collecting all sorts of vintage delights since graduating and while working as a designer and stylist for companies like Webb & Webb, Harrods and Abel & Cole. After 12 years of working for other brands, I wanted to create my own, with a business that combined all my interests: collecting, creating visual stories, and working with my hands, fully embracing the ethos reduce, reuse and recycle.
I now brave sub-zero temperatures at antiques fairs to collect the forgotten treasures, which I turn into Curious Collections for people to enjoy in their homes.
