What a fabulous accessory...unique, fun, well made, and great to look at. The little buttons are so special and perfect on the tie. I just love everything about it. Thanks so much Spring!!!
Creative Reuse: Neckties Transform into Hats, Bags, Collars and More
Forced into a career change due to the 2009 budget cuts, I had to repurpose myself and find and new direction. Sewing has always been a love of mine as well as fabric and color. Combined with my new desire to be sustainable I started designing wearable artworks made from upcycled, vintage and reused materials. The pieces are fun, unique and glamorous. Most of the neckties I use are silk though some are vintage polyester, cotton, wool, rayon, and sometimes acetate. Other materials I like to use are pieces of vintage jewelry and trims, antique buttons, repurposed leather and fabric, vintage silk veil, upcycled belts, and thread (pretty much the only new material.)

My work is to honor the magnificent Mother Nature. I do this by reusing materials that would otherwise be forgotten or thrown away and turning them into beautiful and useful objects.

Rumpelsilkskin products are mostly made from repurposed materials that have already had a life so some loose threads and worn spots (mostly all on the underneath side) may be seen.
