We help women curate sustainable wardrobes through our hand made clothing.
We also love teaching.
Come and learn to sew through our Maker By Nature Sewing School.
Together let’s keep these skills alive!
Maker By Nature Sewing School
We love teaching and seeing our sewing creatives ideas come to life! Please check out our courses under the Sewing School tab above. If there are any particular classes you would like please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your Garment Begins With Your Design and Fabric Choice
We sell 100% cotton Japanese fabrics.
Have our team of artisans sew for you or make your own garments.
If you are a maker we can post the selected fabrics you choose for you to handcraft your own garments.
Our patterns are size inclusive from 6 – 26 with easy to follow instructions. We will be adding to our range of patterns.
Bespoke sustainable fashion is costly, so we would love to help you make your own.
By request we can arrange an online workshop where we will make the garment together. A minimum of four people is required.
Our aim is to revive the craft of sewing and contribute to the care of our planet.
