Now here’s a good idea. Collect up some unused silk from deep inside your closet, send it over to TrendListr and they’ll turn it into a lovely item of lingerie or sleepwear.

Most us of have some items of silk lurking around that we don’t want to throw away and as Louisa, the founder of TrendListr explains, “It seems a shame to be unable to enjoy such beautiful items, which are often in near perfect condition”.

The vintage clothing brand has just launched a service with lingerie designer Effie Butterworth to upcycle these items into lovely pieces of lingerie or sleepwear so you can give a new lease of life to silk lurking at the bottom of the wardrobe.

All the items are handmade in York, UK from the materials you send in.

We think this is a great idea so check out some images above and below and see more on the TrendListr website.
