Vintage inspired clothing and accessories. "One Part History, One Part Art."

Hi! My name's Barbara, and I live in western Montana with husband and daughter. My shop started in 2009 as Blue Kimono Studio. In 2010, I changed my name to Redress Clothing.

Vintage fabrics and clothes all have a story to tell, and add a layer of meaning to the way we dress.

Hi! My name's Barbara, and I live in western Montana with husband and daughter. My shop started in 2009 as Blue Kimono Studio. In 2010, I changed my name to Redress Clothing.

Vintage fabrics and clothes all have a story to tell, and add a layer of meaning to the way we dress.

My vision is to create clothing using all repurposed or recycled materials.

Tons of beautiful second hand clothes end up in landfills every year. I see these as gold mines of unique material. They're often better quality than modern, and it feels good to use something we already have instead of continue to use up the earth's natural resources.

I work hard to find the best fabrics, thread, buttons, and trims for my products. Almost everything I sew with is a natural fiber--wool, cashmere, silk, cotton, or linen.

Each piece is designed from scratch, usually on my mannequin, Edith.

My friend Debbie helps me about four hours a month. She takes photographs and cuts out fabric for some of my more popular items.
