Grey House England is the conception of Charlie Evans, award winning designer and environmental advocate, who sought to create a line of accessories made from sustainable resources for the style-conscious with a conscience.
From a young age Charlie has had a passion for the environment and was encouraged to follow a creative path set out by her family. This passion manifested in a need to create, and to create sustainably.
Charlie’s earliest creative memory, and one of her driving inspirational forces, is her childhood art cupboard. A cupboard brimming with the family’s recycling that her mother had put together. As the saying goes one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and for young Charlie this cupboard was a doorway to endless possibilities. Her mother encouraged her to craft with discarded materials, and as Charlie developed her creations became more ambitious. Her most ambitious creation to date is the forefront of this company, the cardboard rucksack.
