The Artisan Merchants

Here at the Artisan Merchants, we are passionate about transforming discarded materials into stylish and eco-friendly bags and accessories in our workshop in Cornwall, UK. By repurposing these durable fabrics, we not only reduce waste but also give new life to a material that would otherwise have ended up in landfill.

Our skilled artisan, James carefully selects high-quality materials, ensuring that each piece has the potential to be transformed into a unique and functional product. Through a meticulous process, he deconstructs them, salvaging usable sections and removing any non-recyclable components.

Once the material is prepared, we get to work, creating modern and trendy designs for our bags and accessories. From tote bags to cushion covers, keyrings, purses, pouches, wall hangings and much more, our range of products is diverse and caters to various needs and preferences.

Each item is meticulously crafted, with attention to detail and a commitment to quality. We skilfully sew and assemble the recycled material, occasionally incorporating additional reclaimed materials and fabrics such as curtains, deadstock fabric, zippers, buttons, and straps to enhance functionality and style.

The end result is a collection of unique, durable, and fashionable bags and accessories that not only make a statement but also contribute to a more sustainable future. By choosing our products, customers can feel good about their purchase, knowing that they are supporting a circular economy and reducing their environmental footprint.

We believe that fashion and sustainability can go hand in hand, and our recycled bags and accessories are a testament to that. Join us in embracing a greener lifestyle while adding a touch of recycled charm to your everyday life.
