At Pattern Paper Scissors we aim to reduce waste, encourage and build sustainability and have fun taking time out and making something for a loved one.
We aim to reduce the amounts of paper used by encouraging everyone to try PDF patterns. Whilst you need to print your pattern, you won’t neccessarily need ot print your instruction booklet and info pack as you can follow it on your device whislt working.
And for those of us that would still prefer a paper pattern we have used recycled paper for the instruction booklets, glossary/tips guides and packaging. When concievable we aim to produce the other elements (patterns and pattern envelope) with a recycled option too.
Our fabrics are ethically sourced. Where possible we aim to use Oeko-Tex standard 100, and stick to natural fibres such as cotton and bamboo. We also source from suppliers selling dead stock, to save on land fill. Our prints are digital, which uses less water and chemicals than tradition printing methods, and therefore help the people who produce our prints lessen the polluting effects on their surrounding communites.
