About Ginger & Teal
Ginger & Teal produces limited edition ready to wear and bespoke millinery, jewellery and accessories that incorporate as much as possible by way of materials that are upcycled or saved from landfill. Many of the items are literal one-off pieces that will never be repeated - no danger of walking around at an event seeing someone wearing the same thing that you are.
The company has grown from a love of creating well crafted hand made items, a life-long obsession with textiles and jewellery, a hatred of seeing things going to waste and a lot of time spent working with performing arts companies in various jobs.
Materials are often sourced from places like the Borders Scrapstore in Selkirk or re:Make Scotland in Crieff as well as a range of other places which divert things from landfill. It can also be possible to include previously loved items owned by the client into new pieces during the process of developing a commission.
Jo Hills (aka Joscelyn Ginger when in steampunk mode) is a multi-facted creator who discovered the joys of millinery during lockdown following an earlier career covering project management, international development and arts administration. It builds on her lifetime of experience making costumes, jewellery and other accessories - and allows her to create wonderfully eccentric 'wearable sculptures' as well as pieces which appeal to a wider audience.
Mr Teal is the silent member of the partnership. Always on duty at events, keeping a watchful eye over the stock and relishing the many photo opportunities he is presented with.
Please get in touch if you have any queries or would like to discuss having items made to order for you. Collaborations to achieve your vision are actively encouraged.
