Sprigasaurus By Elli Rutson                                  

Textile Upcycler and Eco Seamstress

I’m a Cornish designer-maker; upcycling preloved, discarded or vintage textiles; creating a unique piece that doesn’t cost the earth.

Many of my makes are one of a kind using anything from a small remnant of textile to a vintage curtain. I take inspiration from the unique qualities of Cornwall, from the colours we see to being part of the effort to preserve something for future generations.

Moving towards a sustainable future we work to reduce the amount of textiles heading to landfill in the UK.

Contact me to commission something unique and personal.

And now ‘as seen on TV’! January 2018, George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces showcased Stu-Art Aviation’s summerhouse from the front part of a jet, featuring Sprigasaurus cushions created from aircraft seat covers.
