Gill Scheuer makes bags, bike seat covers, brooches and bunting out of the upcycled fabric from discarded umbrellas. As a passionate hater of waste, Gill always felt that something should be made from the fabric that is thrown away when an umbrella breaks, which they frequently do. Out of this, the umbag was born: a tote bag that not only uses upcycled fabric, but is also designed to be kept in your bag at all times and help you avoid the need for plastic bags. Next came re-‘cycle’ seat covers – an umbrella for your saddle!
Gill makes all her products herself, from her home studio in West Norwood. Her work can be found on etsy.com, makerhood.com and bluepatch.org.
