Celebrating the creation of pieces that are unique like the women who wear them!

Lauren Oland creates wearable pieces that help women feel comfortable and beautiful simultaneously- a combination that is not often presented. She uses natural fibers, forgotten fabrics, remnants, and recycled garments. Her line is sustainable, yet her source of inspiration lies in nature, culture, and history. Lauren’s line does not feel “old and recycled.” Rather, the eco fibers are given a new life.

Lauren designs through directed-freestyle methods. No two women are the same so the clothing that they wear should not be copied! After creating a successful design, she documents the process so that she can recreate a similar garment with new colors and textures.

Welcome to Little Ren Creations-, a Minneapolis based cottage business focused on designing comfortable wearable items for lovely moments. I create each piece through a combination of techniques and use all sustainable materials. I source supplies from other small businesses and take pride in creating beautiful unique pieces for women of all ages and body types.

Little Ren's focus is to design wearable pieces that help women feel comfortable and beautiful simultaneously- a combination that is not often presented in the mainstream fashion industry.

I use natural fibers, forgotten fabrics, remnants, and recycled garments. My line is sustainable, yet my source of inspiration lies in nature, culture, and history. The pieces do not feel “old and recycled.” Rather, the eco fibers are given a new life.

Since I love focusing on the individual while I design, I also enjoy co-designing work for customers who may have a general idea for a piece of clothing they would like to have made for them but are not able to make themselves.

I am also happy to discuss custom work for individuals who may want something they see in my shop made in a different size.

Since all of the work is made sustainably and often through reclaimed materials, it is usually not possible to duplicate a piece. Different colors and materials may be used to achieve a very similar style though! Drop Little Ren a line if you would like to discuss a custom order!

My day job is teaching textile arts and design skills to all ages. I am constantly inspired by the creative energy of my students and then hit my home studio to fulfill my own creative passion.
