Creating custom garments with pre-owned clothes and textile remnants

We rescue and upcycle discarded fabric remnants, samples, and materials to create custom garments, accessories, and decors.

Whenever possible, we thoughtfully repair torn clothes and accessories with machine or by hand to extend their life.

Old clothes and accessories get recycled and reborn with new silhouette / colors / surface patterns / embellishments. DIY Fashion ftw!
