SHOP MISSION: For art and textiles I use eco-friendly resources including non-txic materials, and upcycled textiles turned into new products. My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst and sell them as they are, or turn them into something new.
I believe it’s our duty as contemporary earth dwellers to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still useable in life today either as they are, or transformed into something fresh.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
