Creating a Business out of "Trash"

Many people have overflowing drawers of ratty, old t-shirts in a rainbow of colors. There’s always the inevitable point in our lives when we’re faced with the decision of what to do with the shirts we haven’t worn in a long time: are they in good enough shape for a Salvation Army donation, or should they just be thrown away?

Lanni has a solution. She takes old t-shirts and turns them into unique and hip rings & headbands that women and men across the country have proudly worn to perfect an outfit. She considers this activism in its own right, by encouraging a proactive lifestyle of reuse.

Lanni has another Etsy stored called, "fashionREdesign" which showcases over 400 gorgeous vintage & (re)designed clothing.

She says that she is happy to have found a way to make a difference in the world in a creative way. The best part, she says, is that by providing people with clothes that they might really like, she is encouraging them to think about where those clothes come from. She hopes this will encourage people to think of upcycling things they already have before throwing them away.

    I believe so strongly that we can make a difference with our purchase power, I left my day job in DC, to upcycle clothing. I create no new waste, I truly care 7 generations ahead. We are all connected, thank you for supporting me & our Earth!

Thank you for shopping Upcycled! Your purchase truly helps make a difference: If each person in the US purchased just ONE upcycled piece a year, we would not have 23.8 billion pounds of textile waste end up in US landfills! So, Thank You.

Do you want to be the designer? I love doing custom pieces so contact me if:
-You have a tshirt you'd like made into a headband or ring

I have many Redesigned Clothes and Vintage pieces available in my other shop: fashionREdesign.
