Product Details

Sustainable clothing labels let everyone know you've made your clothes, and you're proud of it too! These labels are made from laser engraved natural cork fabric, a renewable material which is naturally water repellent (making it perfect for washing). No two labels will look the same due to the natural pattern of the cork.

You can sew your labels onto your makes using a leather sewing needle, or you can punch holes in them in order to use yarn or rivets to attach them to your items. This product is an assorted pack of labels, containing one each of "Handcrafted", "I made this" and "One of a kind". All three labels are 60x15mm in size.

About Cork

Cork is harvested from the Cork Oak which grows in Mediterranean forests - outer layers of bark are harvested from the living tree, one of the few tree species in the world which can survive having its bark removed. Only a specified amount can be harvested at any one time by experts and the trees must be allowed to regenerate before being harvested again, usually this is 9 to 12 years between harvests. As the tree lives for approximately 200 years and can be harvested multiple times during its life, the cork industry can support both local biodiversity and communities.

The Haberdasher Bee is a sustainable haberdashery supplier and shop. It is currently one of the only sustainable haberdashery stores online in the world, supporting clients including everyone from large crafting companies and craft sample developers, to small family businesses and solo crafters.

About The Haberdashery Shop

Owned by myself, Leanne (you can find out more here), I’m also naturally interested in sustainable haberdashery supply, design, natural dyes and I’m currently building a profile as a sustainable crafts blogger. When I’m not in the studio, I’m probably roaming the wild with my husband, or snuggling up with some homemade goodies and our equally wild(ish) cats. As a small business owner, I appreciate your support as part of a community of independent crafters, designers and suppliers who are also making the change and helping the world to go plastic-free.

The Haberdasher Bee store is made for, and inspired by, the knitters, sewists, crocheters and home crafting communities, as well as the wider textiles market. I also have blog posts across the rest of the website geared specifically for you.

Finding inspiration on The Haberdasher Bee blog

As well as the haberdashery shop, I hope to inspire people to make things in a more sustainable way. Everything that I write for this site including my knitting blog posts, crochet blog posts, sewing blog posts and dyeing blog posts are all available freely. After searching for sustainable haberdashery tools myself – and finding that they were too expensive or poorly made – I decided to try and fix the problem myself by building a business around it! That’s why the sustainable tools supplied here are made to last, and designed to be plastic-free!

I am also active on social media. The Haberdasher Bee is active on Instagram and Pinterest mostly, and also on Facebook from time to time. If you’d like to contact me for any bulk sustainable haberdashery order, you can do so here.
