art meets fashion... artfink celebrates secrets, scars and second chances

brand philosophy
(secrets, scars and second chances...)
artfink creates one-of-a kind, custom, personalized wearable art using recycled denim and lace. this brand celebrates life and second chances! these pieces have been used, worn, loved. their distress marks are real—not fake. It’s personal history is what gives each pair its unique charm. scars, marks & "damage" tell of days well lived, well loved, well worn—regardless of any original brand name or label. jeans are your second skin and this denim has been entirely hand-ink’d, giving it new life.
artfink is about embracing second chances—at any age.
STYLE IS AGELESS.

each piece has a name.
each piece is signed.
each piece is lightly scented.
each is bejeweled.
each is unique!

Marks, scars, symbols, secrets, scents—life’s little mysteries are to celebrated—especially the second time around…
CRUELTY FREE & MADE WITH LOVE.

My pieces are all handmade and each one is unique! Your piece is especially created for YOU, by hand, with love and care. I use denim in all sizes and conditions and no two pieces are exactly alike, including the recycled brand (I use many) and the fade color of the denim or state of distressed-ness. Please keep this in mind if yours does not EXACTLY match the image you see in my shop. Rest assured each piece is beautiful and made exclusively for YOU! Convo me to insure a perfect fit :)

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: An additional $10 per size will be added for each size above a size 8. Please understand that in no way is this "size-ist". Fink'd shorts look great on any size—or age! It's simply a fact that since all my work is made by hand, the more fabric there is to cover, the more time and materials are required.
Thank you.
