TIE SKIRT
Each tie skirt is produced using 100% recycled ties collected through donations, estate sales, internet, yard sales, and thrift stores across the country as well as from my daddy. I hope you love this skirt as much as I do; it is truly one of my personal favorites.

Care Instructions:
Preferably Dry Clean this skirt.
If you are going to use your washing machine, gentle wash cold and low heat on the dryer.

This skirt has two buttons to close it. The waist is 33 and 1\/2 inches(84cm) and the length is 20 inches (50cm) although there are slits between each tie end to accentuate the ties with movement.


Why Buy Trashion?
Trashion is one of the fashion world’s most underground but exploding trends. Using what others have discarded to create amazing new art pieces and apparel is a way to promote recycling as well as beating quick fads in fashion. By wearing upcycled garments you are taking part in promoting a green trend. Hopefully others will want to participate in what you are demonstrating simply by looking so cool in your new old clothes. In addition to promoting recycling and green thinking, trashion is a way to stand up against big business and factory human rights violations around the world. American independent fashion designers have a tough job competing with prices of clothing made in Asia and Central America. The cost of fabric in America is usually more than the cost of a garment already made and ready for sale. In addition, that bought fabric was probably made at those same factories that we are embarrassed to support. Trashion allows us to really give them a run for their money. Since vintage clothing and materials are cheap and widely available it is a great source of relatively cheap materials allowing us to put more paid time into its artistic construction. Consider all the oil saved when vintage fabrics are used instead of new ones shipped in from all over the world. Think of all the landfill space that can be saved by reusing materials. Imagine how many less natural resources are consumed by not having to make another yard of fabric. Another benefit of trashion is that the materials are just so awesome. Vintage fabrics can often offer more than their fabric store competition. Often times, great vintage patterns or graphics allow for one of a kind pieces to take shape. Vintage fabrics can also provide superior qualities of that particular type of fabric. For instance a wool sweater re-worked into a funky pair of legwarmers may provide a customer more quality for their money since the price of the wool from the fabric store could run more than the retail price of those upcycled funky new legwarmers. Recycled fabrics often have been washed many times and are therefore unlikely to shrink or fade- since they probably already did. Lastly, and perhaps most cool, is that trashion pieces are often one of a kind fashion art that could truly never be replicated. When you buy trashion pieces you are supporting a lot of great causes and concepts including a greener planet, more independent designers, not participating in human rights violations, as well as great original pieces made from fabulous fabrics. Make the world a better place and buy trashion. You’ll be glad you did!
