About TheOldisNewAgainbyAJ

Sales 504
On Etsy since 2014

"perhaps you've come to tell us, the old is new again, each birth enriching aged earth"

“The old is new again” are the last few lines from the poem:

"To Five day old Alyssa Jeanne, from her granddad whom she hasn't seen” ... written by my grandfather, and poet, Richard Work.

I've always loved old things, from the time I could remember, they hold life, and tell a story.

Everyone is so quick to look forwards, they forget to look back.

In this throw away society I want to create heirloom-quality clothes using textile art (painting) combined with ethical fabrics including fine sand-wash silk, hand embroidered linens, vintage lace and organic cotton.

In 2002 I began to study the traditional art of Chinese brush painting. I now have an art degree in textiles & painting and love experimenting with natural dyed, patterns, colour and relief painting with bleach.

In 2014 I opened my shop on Etsy from my Studio in Saigon, Vietnam 🇻🇳 where I have lived since with my husband and my girl (born 2019) 3 cats and a rabbit.

WHY BUY ORGANIC COTTON?

The fashion industry has a significant impact on the environment, and this includes the pesticides and chemicals used to create our textiles. One way to reduce your fashion footprint is to choose certified organic clothing.

By purchasing pieces that have been certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), you’re guaranteeing that your clothing is free from toxic chemicals and pollutants, from the harvest to the factory, to you.

Organic cotton is not exposed to the weakening, harsh chemicals that commercially grown cotton is, therefore organic cotton will last many years, with proper care.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

For best care, garments should be hand-washed in warm water with a gentle eco-friendly soap and air-dried. Organic cotton and hand-painted pieces can be machine washed on delicate cycles in cool-warm water. Air dry is best. Can iron on cotton settings.

All ethnic fabric should be washed separately, as indigo dyes may run.
