    We pretty much have every color under the sun, while not all are listed if stores have a request for a certain color we can usually accommodate it.

    V INTAGEC REATIONS'S TORYV INTAGEC REATIONS'S TORYAfter an unsatisfying corporate career in Human Resources, In 1998 I decided to try my hand at a more creative endeavor. Wanting to do something happy , yet earthfriendly I decided to develop a line of baby clothing using recycled fabrics. Vintage tablecloths, bedspreads and tea towels were repurposed into one of a kind baby dresses. Taught to knit and sew at a young age by my mother , I designed patterns, cut fabrics and picked buttons and trims to make each dress unique.

    In 2005 I decided to cease creating childrens wear to focus on Womens wear. The same concept applied, all from recycled materials. Tablecloths became luxe bias cut patchwork skirts, 40s rayon fabrics became bias cut dresses, and vintage barkcloth became womens jackets and bags.

    In 2006, I decided to open a boutique in downtown Seattle focusing on comtemporary womens wear from independent designers. At the same time, I changed my womens line to comprise a knitwear line designed entirely of recycled cashmere sweaters and an eco friendly womens collection from mill end natural fabrics.

    In 2009, I closed my boutique to focus exclusively on my recycled cashmere knit wear line which is carried in over 40 boutiques in the US and Canada as well as participating in Art and Craft Fairs worldwide.

    It is my philosophy that recycled can also be luxurious. Indulge!
