Profile of Barley Massey

Barley Massey


I set up Fabrications in 2000 on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London.

My focus has been on reviving traditional textile techniques, making, eco design, upcycling, care & repair with a modern and fun approach through my shop, studio, workshops and events. A few of my initiatives include ‘Remember Me’ (a personal service in which I transform clothes that hold memories and sentimental value into comforting items) ‘Rethink Rubbish’ (a series of craft kits to encourage the aspiring upcyclist) and ‘The Upcycling Academy’ (an educational model aiming to provide thought provoking, hands on learning into textile waste, creative upcycling and better fashion industry practises)
The Super Crafter Network is made up of crafting, tailoring and upcycling organisations across the UK who have signed up to a voluntary agreement to help support Love Your Clothes by inspiring and engaging consumers to extend the life of clothing.
All Super Crafter Network businesses operate independently of Love Your Clothes.
Whilst we take every care to work with organisations we trust, Love Your Clothes cannot be held responsible for services contracted or delivered by members of the Super Crafter Network.
