Item details

There's so much plastic in Christmas decorations (especially the ones made by my children), and tinsel is a terror. It's PVC, mass produced and cheap, which means come January, when we're desperately wanting all signs of Christmas to be magicked away to the attic, it's often thrown out with the tree.

It was the spikey, stand-uppy off-snips of string that made me think of tinsel. I collect all my off-snips, using the longer lengths for tying skeins of string when dyeing, and the smaller ones for... well, I'm not sure yet but something. So I had a bit of a play with them on the sewing machine and the idea of STRINSEL (string tinsel) was born.

So this Christmas STRINSEL - a small production, plastic free alternative to PVC tinsel - will be adorning my tree and afterwards it will be wrapped in tissue and placed at the top of the box until next year, and next year, and the year after that...
