Nomadum story

I started using recycled materials a long time ago, back before I even had a shop, and I made items for myself, my family and my friends. I used what was available to me at the time. In a way, I am limited by the low quantity of recycled materials, but I know they are special, which ensures I will give some thought to what I will make from materials such as these. Working with a certain limitation can make people very creative. :)

All my clothing are handmade from recycled materials – recycled sweaters and various recycled fabrics, to be more precise. I feel it is both useful and fun to use materials which had a previous purpose, and to think of new items which can be made from them. We often have clothes at home which we don't plan to wear again or they have a tiny flaw. The challenge is turning materials such as these into something new, and functional at the same time.

Items made from recycled materials have a special dose of charm, and even the slightest irregularities decorate them further. I love working with recycled materials, which is why I use them most often.

Before I begin making anything, I make sure all the materials to be used are washed, ironed and clean. I usually don't sketch – by looking at the materials, I can approximate what can be made from them, and which color combination would fit them. The first step is deciding which materials (texture, color, pattern) I will use and then I start tailoring.

There isn't a set of rules to my inspiration – I am truly inspired by everything around me. My biggest inspirations are nature, music I listen to, fantasy-themed movies and books.
