Welcome to SJDENIM!
Here you will find only the best and most unique fashion, the eco-conscious and handmade kind.
Proudly devoted to fashion sustainability, we focus on re-purposing second hand clothing and upcycling materials in unique ways.
I started this business seven years ago out of a love for all things vintage, especially denim, and a desire to create something relevant and new out of an old, tired piece of clothing. I began repurposing thrifted jeans for myself because I was tired of never finding shorts that fit how I wanted, were flattering on me or were designed with as much or little detail that l dreamed of. It wasn't until my second year in college that I started selling my upcycled denim in batches to others who were looking for the same things. In 2017 I opened my Etsy shop, excited to share my craft with the world. As a passionate shop owner, I strive to provide my customers with quality denim that fits like no other and is like no other.
Today, our merchandise variety expands outside of just denim as we continue to embrace ethical fashion practices and do our part to reduce waste in the industry.

SJDENIM's mission is to curate the best vintage & second hand fashion to thoughtfully customize by hand, so you are always guaranteed a one of a kind piece.

Thanks for stopping by!

*Take note of my suggested size and the measurements listed in the description for size accuracy. Vintage denim sizing is different than how jeans are sized today and original tag sizes on vintage jeans may be misleading. If you have questions about sizing please send me a message!
