I grew up in a small, beautiful town called Fenelon Falls Ontario. I remember always being outside; swimming at the lake in the summer, jumping in piles of leaves in the fall, making snow angels in the winter, and tapping the trees for maple syrup in the spring.

I was always surrounded by my lovely artistic family ; My father and brother - canoe builders, and my mother and sister - piano players. Creativity runs in my blood.

As much as I loved the country life, as I grew older I wanted to experience the city, which brought me to London Ontario where I graduated Fashion Design from Fanshawe College.

As much as the country and city are completely different, there is one thing that makes them the same. Mother Nature. I still get chances to enjoy the outdoors while living in the City. And I am passionate about the beauty of it all.

That is what inspired me to create Planet Playground. I wanted to create a line of clothing that respects Mother Nature. So instead of buying new fabric, I recycle old fabric. My mission is to provide unique clothing to our society without sacrificing the world in which we live. To teach families that recycling is more than just the 'blue bin' - that it can be a fun, and creative thing. I want people to get thinking about the impact they make on our beautiful world that is often taken for granted.

RE: Vintage fabrics
As these fabrics chosen are considered vintage, I have done my very best to use the best parts of the fabrics. Occasionally, there may be a little flaw in the fabric, but nothing you wouldn't expect out of vintage fabrics :)
I always do my best to describe any 'flaws' in the items description.
All fabric is cleaned and pre-treated before use.

Items will be shipped within 1 to 5 business days after payment has been received.(Only due to the fact that I also work a full time job). If you need your item sooner, please contact me and let me know. Please allow an extra 1 to 2 weeks on top of shipping for custom orders.
