Esty; handmade recycled fashion

Monday, May 24, 2010

A friend pointed me in the direction of a site called Esty. A company founded in 2005, offering a website showcasing artists all over the world selling hand made products.

http://www.etsy.com/ - Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade.

Hit the word ‘recycled’ into Esty's search engine and voila; artists around the world selling their handmade products from recycled materials. Here are a few artists with recycled fashion items for sale that I have selected:

Simply Renewed

“I am focused on designing high-quality unique children's fashion from babies to 10 years old. My customer's satisfaction is a top priority. I have been creating something all my life - and have been designing and sewing for kids and grown ups for almost 25 years. In the past two years I started rescuing textiles and giving the new life in a different form or shape. This is not only good for your heart and soul, good karma and sooo much fun! You never know what you will end up with!”
