In 2015, my journey as a mother began producing my designs of recycled sweater as a
means of fundraising for my 5 children in their colleges and universities. Since then, it has
rapidly grown into a sustainable business producing, original one-of-a-kind accessories.
Each item is carefully handmade right here in Toronto from 100% recycled material. Over
the past 2 full years in business, we have built our brand, our product line has grown from
1 item (our sweater poncho) to 12 products.
We have also been able to hire 6 full time employees, and triple the quantity of textile
material we have rescued.
Its all about the design and our passion to expand other discarded textile waste. Its not
just a business to us, but a goal to reduce, reuse & recycle. We make dozens of samples,
multiple revisions, modification and changes until we have invented a truly new unique
item and accessories. We try to incorporate more textile waste materials to be different,
which make us stand out. We have been lucky, and so well received with our new
upcycled material designs by our clients. We try to not rely on our "regulars" products, but
continuously push ourselves to add more one-of-kind new innovated and upcycled
accessories. We will not never stop designing.
We purchase the unwanted, recycled and discarded sweaters and other textiles headed
to either be exported or otherwise destined for our landfills. We purchase from any and
every source that we can find.
We have also hired 3 stay-at-home mom's from across Canada to source materials at
their local thrift shops to send back to us. Here is our list of raw ingredients:
Sweaters, plaid flannels, plaid cottons, men's business shirts, buttons, pleather for our tote
bag handles, old wool blankets, and vintage fabrics (drapes or sheets).
We ship via Canada Post. We will provide you with a tracking number once the items have been shipped.
