Announcement   Bags, clutches, bow ties and accessories from reclaimed denim, Pendleton wool, textile remnants, leather and leather belts with Boro and Sashiko touches

I am always looking for ways to transform remnants and objects that might otherwise be discarded into useful, durable and special items. Lately I've been inspired by Japanese Sashiko stitching and the Boro style of patchwork which praises resourcefulness, discourages waste and turns scraps into garments and objects celebrating mending and the beauty that comes from every day wear and tear. In that spirit, I look around my studio, through scrap bins, and other people's discards and work with what I have to make sustainable pieces for you and your home.

This store allows me to combine my skills as an artist and fashion designer with my love for the environment. Instead of producing fast fashion , I create one of a kind and one of a few items that reflect my commitment to resourcefulness and recycling. Each piece is handmade by me from upcycled materials in a smoke free studio.

Everything in my shop is my own design and intellectual property.Please do not use anything without my express written permission.

About

Stylish, sturdy, sustainable!

I started Scrapcycling as a way to use fabric swatches from design projects. I've learned so many new things from how to keep perfecting my photos to things I'd never thought about like SEO, social media promotion, shipping profiles and content creation. I am committed to creating eco friendly items from reclaimed materials that are as close to zero waste as possible. Because of this commitment, I've been inspired by the Japanese technique of Boro, which is a means of celebrating mending and the creation of new textiles from old, scrap products. I use the materials I have on hand to put my own spin on this ancient technique while still infusing the original spirit of the process into each item. Stay tuned for fashion items, I plan to incorporate this technique into garments soon!
