Recycled Coats & Vests

Recycled Coats & Vests

One of a kind coats, vests & accessories
made from recycled sweaters, scrap fabrics and vintage trims


Sweaters are hand selected from thrift stores, grouped into color stories and then cut up into pattern pieces and re-worked and sculpted into wonderful new designs. I hand dye lace trims and incorporate ornate vintage findings such as jewels and buttons into each coat to add elegance and charm. 

These pieces are truly eco-friendly, finely hand crafted and designed to flatter a woman’s curves in just the right places. Every part of a recycled sweater is used down to the smallest scrap. The coats are created first and any scraps leftover from the coats are then saved and made into vests. As a final step in the recycling process, any scraps leftover from the vests are made into arm warmer accessories and stuffing for pillows and cushions.

These pieces are a true labor of Love… Many days go into the making of just one coat. Pricing varies and is dependent upon many factors such as cost of all sweaters used, amount of hours involved to wash, cut out, sew and hand dye trims and the cost of finishing details like fabrics, novelty buttons and trims.
