Artisan Upholstery Bumblebag

Artisan Upholstery Bumblebag

Each of our unique Bumblebags are an environmentally friendly alternatie to a store bought bag.  They are lovingly made by our volunteers using donated sewing machines and fabrics that would have otherwise gone into landfill.


The textile industry is one of the world's biggest polluters, especially with the advent of "fast fashion" - by purchasing one of our textile items you enable us to recycle more fabric into artisan items like our Bumblebags!


These bags are handcrafted by our Green Hive volunteers, with each one being unique - they are perfect for use as handbags, and make an excellent alternative to wrapping your gifts, due to the unique nature of each bag, we are unable to guarentee repeat items or items of a specific size.


Join our Bumblebag sessions held monthly to learn how to make your own, or register for a Bumblebags starter kit and craft your tote bags from home!


    Handcrafted by our Bumblebags volunteers.

    Each bag is made from 100% recycled textiles.

    All bags are unique and sizes will vary.

    Bumblebags can be washed with warm soapy water, or depedent on the material, washed in a washing machine at 30C.
