Woodburn, Oregon | 171 Sales

Announcement    My love of vintage linens and quality fabrics has resulted in many unique custom garments. excellent costumes and festival wear for the whole family and the creation of Rough Green Edges.

For many Rough Green Edges is a great source of unique clothing, costume and festival garb at the affordable prices that the use of re-purposed fabrics makes possible.

But it is more than that.

Rough Green Edges offers affordable ethical clothing made possible through revitalizing quality, but outdated, materials rather than allowing them to be relegated to landfills.

For environmentally conscientious buyers who value living with a low carbon footprint my giving new life to pre-loved fabrics offers an avenue to merge needs, beliefs and purchasing power.

I thank you for supporting me in my efforts to make a living with the least impact on our environment.

Rough Green Edges can be found in the Pacific Northwest at diverse events - Art, Celtic,Renaissance and Fantasy fairs, Highland Games, holiday bazaars and markets. That is where buyers can see my entire current inventory which changes constantly.

My Etsy shop has a hard time staying caught up with what I have available! Since every garment is unique new pictures and descriptions have to be done for each one! I am grateful for followers that check back and favorite my shop so they'll know when new items are available!

I invite people that have personally seen and been enchanted with my creations to contact me through my Rough Green Edges Etsy shop when they are ready to make a purchase so I can share the currently available inventory or discuss a custom order.

Some Items can be made to order and are listed with a variety of options.

Filling a Gap

Rough Green Edges was born in 2010 out of my daughter-in-law's dissatisfaction with the types and colors of baby clothes available in stores. From a favorite tee shirt we crafted the first trendy colored infant tee dress with a black silk screened silhouette in one lower corner - not your usual baby attire - which became the foundation design for RGE.

The abundance of great quality fabric's available at rummage/garage/estate sales and thrift stores is mind boggling! Using these fabrics allows me to make boutique quality alternative fashions affordable and be part of the growing earth conscious economy.

Within a year Rough Green Edges inventory of one-of-a-kind baby clothes expanded to include items for kids up to 12 years old. The transition to adult refashions began during the 2012 Christmas season!

Rough Green Edges first sales were made at Klamath Falls Farmers Market in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Since then RGE has attended markets throughout Oregon and Northern California. In December 2013 I decided to try Etsy and within two weeks I had my first Etsy sale and became an international seller!

Until 2018 I continued to attend markets and fairs within a 400 mile radius of Klamath Falls as well as offer my designs on Etsy. During 2018 my husband and I sold our house in Klamath Falls, Oregon and moved 250 miles Northwest to little town of Woodburn, Oregon in the Willamette Valley- which is a 30 minute drive to the metro area of Portland, Oregon - the states only big city.

Rough Green Edges has evolved from a converted guest bedroom to re-purposed backyard shed to a workshop/showroom in Klamath Falls and an Etsy shop and now to a custom built workroom in my new home. Sale locations have expanded from a pop-up spot at a local farmers market (Klamath Falls Farmers Market is one of the best ones in the state of Oregon) to include Renaissance Faires, Highland Games and guest spots in Portland art collectives and Recycled Art events in the Willamette Valley.

Nine years later I still love creating unique costumes and one of a kind garments! Personally seeing the joy of customers when they find the RGE garment that speaks to their heart is extremely rewarding at the live venues and events!

Conversations with customers often inspire me to create new and different fashions and recycled/up-cycled accessories.

As 2020 approaches my focus will be on building up a more robust Etsy presence. I appreciate all my customers and returning patrons! I hope they will transition to buying online!

    I'm addicted to what I do and I know it when I get testy when I don't get to spend uninterrupted time in my workshop. It's not working to me. Envisioning, designing and assembling my creations is just enjoying myself ~ for hours on end!

Custom Orders

IMPORTANT -- Due to the recycled nature of my materials exact fabrics and colors can not be promised.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
IMPORTANT -- Buyers grant complete creative freedom beyond basic color scheme and structural aspects to me.

With this artistic and creative freedom I can make a garment with my personal style that was the inspiration for you to contact me about a custom order.

If not satisfied with the completed item I will accept the return, refund the purchase price (minus shipping costs) and resale the item as a ready made garment.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When placing a custom order desired color, texture and accent details will be discussed. The more detail provided about the intended use and wearer the better I am able to set down the parameters that will be the detailed order placed on Etsy with the agreed upon price. This will be the contract the custom order will be made on.

All custom orders must be paid in full before work is started.

Not all styles or garments lend themselves to alteration or customization. Please contact me so we can discuss your custom order ideas.
