About us

Our objective is simple, to work closely with women’s charities and local community organisations across Dorset and BCP to provide clothing to women in need of clothing support. How? By gifting bespoke clothing gift bags.

There are many women living in the UK who are in desperate need of clothing and many women who have a wardrobe full of clothes they no longer need. Clothes they do not wear, no longer fit or have fallen out of love with. We believe we can bridge the gap by supporting women as well as promoting sustainability and extending the life of garments. 

We hope to move away from the notion of clothing donations arriving with the women who need them in a black bag (the embodiment of a bag of rubbish). We use donated clothing for our gift bags. The clothes are laundered, folded and beautifully presented in drawstring bags, lovingly handmade using up-cycled fabric. Our clothing gift bags are personally tailored to the recipients size, style preference and clothing need. Each gift bag contains 15-18 items, an inspirational message and a hand made lavender heart.
