- Sustainability -
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
One issue close to Emma's heart is living in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way. To achieve this while making costumes is difficult, but not impossible.
Firstly; reusing fabrics - one pair of curtains has managed to be toiles for many projects and lining for so many others!
Where possible Emma endeavors to procure more sustainably sourced cotton for her projects, and again where possible she sources from New Zealand, supporting small businesses and growth in New Zealand.
The feathers that are used in any costume come from farms in New Zealand that practice safe and humane treatment of animals only.
Finally, Quirky Costumier HQ is a paper-free office!
