    Fun fact

    Waking up on Christmas morning to see your stocking filled with presents at the end of your bed has long been a staple tradition, and as far as anyone is concerned the bigger the stocking the better. But did you know that the largest stocking ever made was in Tuscany, Italy, measuring up at 168 feet long and 70 feet wide. It was created to raise money for charity and contained balloons with candy inside

    Fabrications - an East London based creative hub!

    Fabrications is an independent gallery, shop and workshop dedicated to the best contemporary textile practice and design, with a particular interest in eco-conscious design.

    Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London. The shop's founder, Barley Massey, has spent the last 16 years finding ingenious ways to turn scraps into original fabrics and using recycled materials to create cutting-edge items. Since 2012, "The Imaginarium", a fully-fitted working studio, has hosted workshops and classes.

    Barley has been awarded as one of Kevin McCloud's (Grand Designs) Green Heroes for her minimally-processed, up-cycled products, which "demonstrate a lightness of touch backed up by a rigorous approach".
