Red, white and blue here we come with berets, bags, beads and more!


Recently, I took a vacation to Costa Rica (there will be more blog posts about that to come!) and was extremely inspired by the eco friendly nature that is that country.  The beauty of the mountains, waterfalls and butterflies.  That trip has inspired much of the products that you will see coming from me in the next few months, starting with July.  As always,  all our designs are made by upcycling fabric or products already in existence.  We pride ourselves on being eco-friendly as well as innovative, trying to come up with new, fresh, inspired ideas everyday!  I hope you like our new products for this month.  Now, lets get to it!

This first piece is a Multi-Colored Beret Crocheted from Upcycled T-shirts.
