Description

Minimalist grey coasters with an appliqué pink spot created with fabric recycled from commercial production processes. The coasters are part of Scatty Knits ‘Tiny Carbon footprint’ range which focuses on zero waste production. Each coaster is made from 100% lambswool recycled from cutting room floor waste.
An astounding 15% of fabric intended for clothing ends up on the cutting room floor. (Source:Timo Rissanen, “From 15% to 0: Investigating the creation of fashion without the creation of fabric waste)
While an estimated £140 million worth (around 350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year. Source: Wrap
Each of Scatty’s products are intended to help reduce those statistics. Buying and using unsold stock from charity shops which could go to landfill or may be shipped abroad to negatively impact on indigenous fabric markets or fabric waste from industrial production Scatty operates on a #useeveryscrap policy.

Hi I’m Bev, CEO, chief designer, maker, beverage technician & general dogsbody of Scatty Knits. Now bear with me, I’m an ex-teacher with 25 years at the chalkface who has happily swapped her red pen for a sewing machine. How? you ask.

Well as with so much in my life, it started with a dog. Working as a dog home boarder (did I forget to mention that?) I met some fabulous eco makers who inspired me to begin the Scatty Knits journey. So I take clothes from charity shops that can’t be sold because of a stain or a hole and upcycle them into anything and everything.

Scatty knits aims to show that every scrap of fabric can be used in production by being inventive in design and product ranges. So expect an eclectic mix of gifts and goodies that will be appealing but also environmentally friendly. After all, who doesn’t want to play their part in loving and looking after our home – there’s no planet B, folks.

Originally from Belfast but now living in Newcastle and working on mastering Geordie sayings in a Belfast brogue. (Honestly, it’s hilarious – to me at least). I grew up surrounded by sewing, knitting (90% of my childhood photos are of me in hand knits!) and repurposing fabric. The ingenuity of the average Northern Irish grandmother to turn a shirt cuff and make an old worn sheet have a new release of life is not to be underestimated. So as well as an eco business, Scatty knits is my remembrance of the women who taught me to make and the parts they played in the textile industries of Northern Ireland Mum, with knitting always on the go and making children’s clothes, Granny Shields who made high end men’s shirts and Granny Harvey who wove linen in the 1930s.
