Remember Esther Coombs, the designer/maker who takes vintage crockery and overlays upon it her own line drawings? Here's another example of a designer taking existing materials and giving them her own eco-styled stamp. Tamasyn Gambell prints onto vintage scarves to make something new and lovely from something old and unloved. I'm quite keen on her hardback notebooks - covered in vintage printed scarves, these are bound by a family bookbinders in Essex and use recycled paper stock from a 100-year-old British paper mill.
But hey don't take my word for it - Tamasyn's work will be available this weekend:
East London Design Show, Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street
Friday 4th December (12pm – 8pm )
Saturday 5th December (10am – 6pm)
