About

Unique products and designs made from rescued materials

I am a newly graduated Product Designer passionate about zero-waste products & closed-loop systems.

In 2016, I have committed myself to a zero-waste lifestyle, so I strive to minimize the waste that I produce at home and in my store. I source my materials from local textile recycling programs as well as fabric store bolt ends. My online store creates no textile waste since everything is used - even the scraps. I hope that by making plastic alternatives such as beeswax cloth wraps more widely available and easily accessible, more people will switch over to this lifestyle.

I also do commissioned pieces. Please don't hesitate if you would like something made for you! To see my complete portfolio, please visit my blog at: https://alisayaoportfolio.wordpress.com

I will ship to the verified address provided on Etsy (and PayPal if you paid through PayPal). I will contact you to confirm if the address is unverified or if there are discrepancies between the addresses.

Frequently asked questions

Do You Really Hand Make Everything Yourself?

I am very proud to say, YES! Every item in this shop is made from scratch by myself; I do not outsource to factories or anyone else. You can often see my process photos under "Shop Updates" and on my instagram @aymyao. I am happy to take in-progress photos for you of your items upon request.

How Will The Items Be Shipped?

Shipping fees are based on the weight of the item and its packaging. Due to the large variety of items in my store, I have personally weighed each item and measured its size to give the most accurate shipping price.

All items will be shipped through Canada Post. Parcels are insured and will have tracking. Orders over $100 will require a signature upon delivery to prevent parcel theft.

What is Zero Waste Packaging?

Zero Waste packaging is packaging that consists of one of the following:

1. Repurposed Materials - I strive to reuse packaging as much as possible, so your order may arrive in shoe boxes, food boxes, reused bubble mailers, wallpaper, etc.

2. Recyclable Materials - When I am unable to reuse materials, I strive to make my packaging recycleable - that means no bubble wrap, no foam packing peanuts, etc.

Let's minimise waste together!

Do you accept custom and personalised orders?

Yes, I do. Please click the "Request Custom Order" button to send me a message with the item details.

Do you sell wholesale?

I am only accepting wholesale orders within Canada. Please send me a message through Etsy or by emailing me at aymyao@gmail.com
