An eclectic mix of second hand, vintage & upcycled garments. Improving peoples wardrobes one garment at a time. 

Circa 2013 a brand was born, MadebyGayle. One off, sustainable t-shirts were lovingly handmade in a workshop located at the bottom of a garden. Alongside this, the founder, Gayle also worked in vintage retail, reworking & selling garments that people no longer wanted.

Over the years Gay's passions for sewing & preventing clothing from going to waste have helped her build Soul & Flare, an independent & sustainable brand ran from a studio based in Nottingham, U.K. She is an avid repairs & alterations seamstress, slow fashion activist & charity shop rummager. 

As Soul & Flare expands so does the team. Our Depop is ran by her twin sister Hev, selling secondhand & vintage clothing. Our studio is kept happy & productive with the assistance of Aaron. You can keep up to date with what we do over on our facebook & instagram.

Thanks for joining this journey & happy shopping.

Let's reduce throw away fashion waste.
