V INTAGEC REATIONS'S TORY After an unsatisfying corporate career in Human Resources, In 1998 I decided to try my hand at a more creative endeavor. Wanting to do something happy , yet earthfriendly I decided to develop a line of baby clothing using recycled fabrics. Vintage tablecloths, bedspreads and tea towels were repurposed into one of a kind baby dresses. Taught to knit and sew at a young age by my mother, mother ,IIdesigned designedpatterns, patterns,cut cutfabrics fabrics and and picked picked buttons buttons and and trimstrims to make to make eacheach dressdress unique. unique. In 2005, 2005 II decided decided to to cease cease creating creating children’s children’s wear wear to to focus focus on on Women’s Women’s wear. The same concept applied, all from recycled materials. Tablecloths became luxe bias cut patchwork skirts, 40’s rayon fabrics became bias cut dresses, and vintage barkcloth became women’s jackets and bags. In 2006, I decided to open a boutique in downtown Seattle focusing on comtemporary women’s wear from independent designers. At the same time, I changed my women’s line to comprise a knitwear line designed entirely of recycled cashmere sweaters and an eco friendly women’s collection from mill end natural fabrics. In 2009, I closed my boutique to focus exclusively on my recycled cashmere knit wear line which is carried in over 40 boutiques in the US and Canada as well as participating in Art and Craft Fairs worldwide. It is my philosophy that recycled can also be luxurious. Indulge!
