About

We're just a couple crafty chicks who like us some serious deconstructive crafting.

Oh yeah, we like it. A LOT.

So, after giving away lots of bags of well-loved clothing, we decided to go all ninja on a bagful,
and came up with a really unique, funky kind of yarn.

We could of stopped there, but where's the fun in that?

So we decided to make it into projects, and offer them to people wanting something they'll never find again.

100% unique. 100% handmade. 100% one-of-a-kind.

Some people call it 'recycled'...
Others say it's 'repurposed'...
We've even heard 'upcycled'...
We just call it 'RipTie'…

We like the idea of keeping a few bags out of the landfill. Heck, we even recycle the scraps, because even crafty chicks know that good planets are hard to find ;)

But know what we really, reeeeallllly like??

Rescuing worn, well-loved clothing, and giving it a new lease on life by rippin', tyin' and rollin' it into something new and exciting - all by hand - just for the heck of it.

Why on this green earth do we do this??

Because we're green lil' chicks
And we like to share our passion for...

green. smart. fashion.

Please be sure to read our Shop's Policies section prior to purchasing... thank you! :)
