Snoots & Scraps

Why sustainability is important and how Snoots & Scraps aim to do our bit.

  • Materials

    Deadstock fabric refers to fabric that has been produced but never used or sold. It often comes from overstock from fashion designers or brands.

    The main benefit of using deadstock fabric is that it allows us to use pre-existing material which is otherwise destined to landfill.

    Second hand

    All T-shirts used are second hand; there is a surplus of clothing and textiles destined for landfill that is still in useable condition. I do my bit my picking up t-shirts to make into dog clothes and accessories.

  • Reworking

    All the materials I use go through a whole reworking process; including washing and drying the second hand t-shirts and the fabrics. I cut the pattern pieces carefully from either t-shirts or fabrics using as much of the original items as possible, focusing on getting the print in the best position and minimising the amount of waste.


    Everything deconstructed is created into something new. All pieces are sewn together again, to create a brand new item for your pet!
    All are one of a kind, ethically made and as gentle to the environment as possible - no new textiles have been produced in the process.

  • Packaging

    All the packaging I use is 100% plastic free, recyclable and reusable.

    Zero Waste

    Whilst it's almost impossible to create no waste whatsoever as a business (and as a human) I'm very intentional in the way I manage the materials I use; when cutting fabric I make sure to optimise the layout to minimise the amount of scraps which then gets separated by colour and fibre to be reused and repurposed to create new products.
    Essentially, everything here gets saved and reused later, even loose threads!

  • People

    Snoots & Scraps is a one woman band that focuses on creating pet clothing and accessories in alternative and punk influenced styles while trying to have as minimal impact on the earth

    Not just the earth

    Sustainability isn't just about the environmental impact, by working for myself and using second hand materials I can be sustainable in ensuring my products are not the result of exploitation of any unwilling people.
