Frugal Cool's Remade Home

I'm delighted that FollyandGlee has been invited to take part in Remade Home from Thursday 2 to Saturday 3 June at the Loretto Gallery in Musselburgh.

We were invited by Nicky Orr  the inspiration and driving force behind Frugal Cool. As Nicky explains "Frugal Cool is a sustainable design business, inspired by the vibrant community of talented artisans around us who are creating art, jewellery and home accessories ethically. We are all committed to a happy and healthy world. So we design and create beautiful things mindful of our fragile planet.We promote work which is ethically produced, re-used, green, vintage or fair trade."
Remade Home looks to be a really inspiring visit all about local sustainable design for our homes -making the most of things we already have, and mixing found treasures with contemporary eco technologies.  There is even a Remake Lounge where you can join in for a little creative learning.

Can't make it up to the beautiful Scottish coast this time? Me too - bummer. Console yourself with a browse of ReMade exhibitors in a Flickr Gallery or in the FrugalCool Online Shop.

There are quite a few suprise exhibits going up North from FollyandGlee but I'll share a peek at 3 of the patchwork ones. They were such fun to do.
