Designer Profile | Lisa Tse

Founder of Toronto-based workshop Recraft, Lisa Tse is a graduate of Ryerson School of Fashion. She combines her love for old world techniques and new technology. She has a strong passion for craftmanship.

She takes inspiration from textiles, stationery, and the elements. Her green roots run deep – raised to conserve and reuse everything. It sparked a lifetime of loving fabric and rescuing scraps like abandoned pets.

Recraft is a workshop that specializes in upcycling fabric scraps – turning waste into worth by collecting scraps of fabric from local agencies and garment makers.

Recraft practices sustainable thinking—upcycling, repurposing and local engagement. To this end, they only use reclaimed materials in their craft—discarded fabrics and trims that would have otherwise been sent to landfills. All card stock and envelopes are made from recycled paper, and the packaging is both reusable & recyclable.

Recraft Postcards are now available through ideacious, with just $20 snagging you a set of 5!
