What happens to old hotel bedlinen...? Maybe you've never thought about this great life-mystery. Till now.
Because artist and silk scarf-maker Vicki Murdoch is transforming 'retired' Marriott Hotel bedsheets in tandem with a local social enterprise called Sleeping Bags, which creates luxury from waste and supports London-based artists and manufacturing. It turns duvet covers into tote bags giving them a new life, keeping them out of landfill - and benefiting the homeless, at the same time, with proceeds from the £30 price going to St. Mungo's, a charity with over 100 projects across London and the south of England.
One king-size sheet and duvet cover = 10 bags, and a chunky donation to enable homeless individuals to sleep more comfortably.
What a dreamy idea.
To buy one of the bags, call 0207-725 5923
