Cut it Apart, Sew it Together
Up-cycling and making art out of reclaimed materials is something I have been doing for all of my life. I love it because every piece tells a story and uses things that would have been discarded to make something beautiful. It's fun to see how interesting each piece comes out and it feels good to give something a new awesome life to live! I have done a lot of collaging with things I keep, and now I love finding interesting materials and collaging them together into pieces of art you can wear!
Before AAY, I also sold knitted items, paintings and other works of art. Sewing up-cycled clothing is now my main artistic pursuit. Finding interesting materials to work with, making up new designs, and sewing them together into new beautiful things is something I put my heart into everyday. It makes me very happy to have an outlet for my work to go out into the world so I can keep doing what I love. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in being creative and everyone who has enjoyed the things I make!
Every piece is a unique design. I go on material finding safaris and work intuitively on each piece based on what I discover. If you would like to make a custom order for something in the shop, if materials are available it may be possible to make something similar to the original item, or something with the same type of materials or elements. The materials will usually decide what can be reproduced and to what degree. Ask and we can work out the details of the piece. Look at the shop policies for more information on custom orders.
