Literary & Acoustic Tent – 12pm – Sunday
Linda Thomas designs and makes luxury upcycled clothing for amazing women to celebrate their individual beauty.
She won young designer of Nottingham in the late 1980s and promptly went on to study medicine! She now combines her passions for People and Planet by sharing her professional life between designing and healing work.
Linda Thomas Eco Design is based in a studio overlooking the City of Bristol in the South West of England and Linda makes each piece individually by redesigning and reworking with beautiful materials such as cashmere, merino, silk and linen. Hand felted features, such as collars, using merino wool and silk and finished with vintage or handmade buttons. All stitched with organic cotton.
Linda recently designed the Wave of Waste dress to highlight the issue of single-use bodyboards around the Cornish coast and the balloon dress to highlight the issue of plastic balloons in the environment. Both dresses will be on display in the Literary tent.
