Vintage Creations Recycled Cashmere
Tell us about your business.Starting in 1998 after a burnout in my corporate career, I decided to do something happy and crafty. My mother taught me to sew when I was young. I had a business degree, I love fashion , vintage textiles and recycling. I wanted to recycle sweaters into new garments. Being allergic to wool, I chose cashmere. So many cashmere sweaters are trashed to landfills because of mothholes but have plenty of usable areas. We save thousands of sweaters per year. We hand dye, cut and sew into new luxurious garments like our color blocked sweater, side gathered hat, ruffle scarf and fingerless gloves. 100 percent recycled , handmade in the USA
What makes your business stand out?We are handmade and ecofriendly.
