Celebrate Your Figure with Sustainable, Handmade USA, Hand-Dyed Up-Cycled Design
Since 2003, I mix colors to create original unique shades, I have reconstructed and embellished reclaimed vintage American made garments.
I do all the hand dying myself since I use original recipes and stirring and timing is essential in the process of creating the right shade/color. Also, I do all the sewing by machine or by hand adding lace, tulle and other embellishments from reclaimed materials.

About glamgarb

On Etsy since 2010

Welcome to my beautiful world of unique handmade and hand-dyed garments made in USA.

Since 2003, I have hand-dyed and embellished reclaimed vintage garments.
In my hand-dying process, I mix colors using my original recipes. I do all the sewing myself and I use recycled media in my embellishments like lace, tulle, and ribbon etc.

inspiration...
I remember my mother's slips as delicate, feminine and beautiful. My love and admiration for my mother as a child and the longing to wear those glamorous garments gave me the inspiration to create my own line.

collecting...
I was born and grew up in Sweden. Shopping for vintage was my passion as a young girl. My joy for beautiful garments has developed into a labor of love. I have always wondered who owned and cared for these lovely vintage slips. In my mind, they must have been loved and treasured by the most glamorous women through the years.

my craft...
The colors I hand-dye are influenced by earthly elements, which give me inspiration to experiment in developing new exciting palettes. My designs are embellished with lace, ribbon, and beads. I always want to create a timeless one of a kind garment that expresses individual beauty to every woman regardless of age or size.

sustainable...
My creations originate from a vintage American made garment. In all my embellishing mediums I use recycled materials. As an independent green designer, I hope that my sustainable line brings not only glamour, but also comfort of knowing that you are reducing carbon footprints by wearing my design.

ALSO! A big, heartfelt thank you to all of my lovely, regular customers (and new ones, too), who make doing what I love to do possible ♥

I hope you love my little shop!
