About me

Sustainable, beautiful, reusable products for your home and family, designed and sewn in Market Harborough, England.

The Conscious Sewist is owned by Charlie. Hello, Charlie. Charlie doesn’t believe in single-use household cloths, wipes and bags. Oh, no.

Instead, Charlie absolutely believes in reusable items, sustainable fabrics and lessening our impact on the planet. Hoorah.

The Conscious Sewist is home to those reusables. Charlie hand stitches and sews a range of textiles goods to use, and reuse, all around the house. Her Unpaper Towels, Reusable Wipes, Makeup Pads, Hankies, Bread Bags and Shoppers are a firm favourite among her loyal customer following, who adore her attention to detail and eye for a beautiful colour palette.

Materials Matter

Combining a past career in footwear and a lifetime of respecting nature, Charlie inherently understands the need for sustainable fabrics to lessen our impact on the planet.

Steering away from cotton, over time, Charlie has progressively moved towards hemp and linen, as well as utilising fabric deadstocks for her designs.

She meticulously ensures each element of her products follows this ethos, right down to the smallest detail. From the thread used for stitching to the packaging for posted orders; Charlie spends hours researching, ensuring every detail is the most sustainably sourced, biodegradable and low-waste option available.

Based in her garden studio at home in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, her little haven away from two noisy boys, a husband, and a dog, Charlie sets about creating her range entirely from scratch, inspired by the bits of design and sassy quotes she has taped to the wall. (With paper tape, of course, we’re all eco round this way).
