// ETHEL STUDIO creates products from rescued and responsible materials to inspire sustainability + empowerment //
In a world of waste and mass-production, our one-of-a-kind textiles serve to return us back to our aesthetic roots; respecting world textile traditions and filling our living spaces with purposeful color. We rescue fabrics from fashion company offices and production facilities as well as from damaged garments via trusted partners. We then slowly transform them into products in our zero-waste process. Our impact is small, but we passionately strive to prove that artists and designers of any size can and should be a vital part of the circular economy where no materials are wasted. Even our smallest of scraps find a home.
