Marjolein Trewavas

Upcycled Designs from Room for Change

I am a textile designer who loves auctions, rummaging through car boot sales, second-hand shops and being creative. Anything old and broken, or vintage that has outlived its usefulness, I can mend and transform into pieces that are usable again. I make an eclectic mix of colourful sometimes vintage bazaar style pieces that are sometimes slightly kitsch, sometimes romantic and shabby chic but always visually stimulating and fun to wear or to have in your house.
I creatively up-cycle, making new products of better quality and wherever possible I use recycled materials. I re-use antique fabrics, silverware and dolls and transform them into quirky creatively upcycled items. An old sugar bowl and scrap of an old blanket are used to make a pin cushion, silver teapots and cutlery are transformed into wind chimes. Find my creations on aroomforchange on Facebook or roomforchangevintage on Instagram and you can contact me on marjolein.trewavas@btopenworld.com
