What do sheep, volunteer shepherds and old tents have in common?
Answer: The Lookerers Cloak and one very innovate person.
We get lots of enquiries about what to do with tents that are either no longer usable our no longer needed.
The latter usually find new homes on ROG. The former is another matter.
We have had enquiries for sustainable solutions for tents abandoned at the end of festivals and gatherings.
Some of these involve container loads of reusable tents!
We are always very interested when we see that somebody is actually interested in tents that are no longer usable.
Such was the case with the following story…
Maria Eva Russo has designed a garment specially for a community of modern shepherds of Brighton and Hove.
The Lookerers Cloak represents past and present using local wool and a reclaimed tent; applying traditional and modern-day skills.
