Vintage-inspired crafts and art
Having always had a passion for things a little bit old-fashioned and camp, Agnes Graves has been collecting old fabric since she was a child. With a fiery passion for things that look good (being a graphic designer by day) she only uses the best quality patterns and never vintage for the sake of vintage. She has recently released released her own exclusive fabrics; a cat design, inspired by 1960s haberdasheries (of course), and a second pattern inspired by her favourite drag queens.
At the ThatAgnes stall you will find make-up bags, pencil cases, cushions and any illustrations that have taken her fancy that week. Everything is sourced from the UK and handmade in her kitchen in Brixton.
