About

WWW.SARAHMAXWELL.US

Sarah Maxwell is an eco-friendly clothing line consisting of 3 lines: O.O.A.K., Vintage & Knitage. we came up with the idea for their eco-friendly line while working as design assistants at a summer music theater together in the summer of 2010. We both love the outdoors and keeping their earth clean and green.

Sarah Maxwell O.O.A.K - this line is a 'one of a kind' collection of seasonal and custom clothing created using reclaimed and recycled materials. We create new clothing out of reclaimed materials ranging from old t-shirts and vintage Levis to slip covers and bedsheets. Due to the nature of the materials used, no two pieces ever turn out the exact same; resulting in eco-friendly clothing you can wear without fear of someone else having on the same outfit.

You will find some ready-made O.O.A.K. clothing on our Etsy page, but if nothing there suits your fancy you can contact us about custom orders! Custom orders leave color choices completely up to you, and we can even make items from your very own discarded clothes.
The clothing seen in the video on our homepage (www.sarahmaxwell.us) are some examples of what we do; making everything from lounge shorts and hoodies to evening gowns and bridal!

Sarah Maxwell Vintage - a collection of affordable vintage clothing, shoes and accessories handpicked and scouted out by Sarah and Maxwell.
These are fashion pieces that we find and see modern potential in. Breathe new life into an old pair of Sarah Maxwell Vintage Levis with a pair of brand new heels, or bring some rustic charm to a brand new dress by belting it with a Sarah Maxwell vintage leather belt!

Sarah Maxwell Knitage - this collection of truly 'one of a kind' scarves, totes, snoods etc. is a collaboration that we have with Maile Losgar (Max's Mom). As a team we create balls of yarn using old graphic t-shirts, and then Maile knits them into super heavy and extra warm scarves with charming imperfections and scattered patterns. No two scarves look alike, and take a lot of love and work. SM-Knits items are made to order due to the nature of the labor, leaving the color choice completely up to you!
