Reclaimed Wool into Kid’s Stuff!

Textiles and knit items like sweaters have a lot of work, energy and engineering built int. And far too many end up in landfills. Clothing that has wear left in it should be reused, handed down, sent to Goodwill or to missions abroad. But what to do with it the ripped, worn out or damaged garment? Here’s creative idea From Cate & Levi, a collection of one of a kind articles made from reclaimed material.

While Josh Title and his wife were waiting for their first child, they decided to welcome them to the world by creating a line of one of a kind, beautifully crafted and responsibly made products for children. They help preserve the planet for the kids by making worn textiles into t hand puppets, pillow pals, stuffed animal, “zoo cubes’ and wall art.

Many of us are old enough to have had a monkey or a hand puppet made from an old sock, but probably not as creative as these unique items.

I love this walrus from reclaimed wool.

This moose is cute too.

Here’s a pillow pall alligator made from a wool sweater.

And a very brilliant hippo.

Can you live without this koala?

Even the rats are cute!

A cow zoo cube- a soft block for toddlers.

And a fine selection of wall art from old sweaters:

Your basic red and white striped dog…..

From sheep to sheep - cradle to cradle wool wall art…

And pink elephant wall hanging without the hangover.

Each item in the Cate & Levi collection is one of a kind and handmade, so your unique offspring will enjoy an equally unique plush toy, pillow or artwork, while reusing wool and saving water, oil and land in the process.
