MY WORK

MY MISSION: SUSTAINABLE SEWING

In 2018, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a report on the previous 35 years' generation and disposition of municipal solid waste (MSW). In that year alone, 17.3 million tons of textile waste was generated in the United States, with 11.3 million tons ending up in landfills. Compared this to the 1.71 million tons of textile waste that was landfilled in 1960, and it is clear that our treatment of textiles has changed dramatically.

As a sewist and consumer living in the United States, I recognize the unique part that I play in this industry. And while I- while we- have a long way to go when it comes to reducing our environmental footprint, it is my goal to bring awareness of these issues and cut waste where I can. As such, I have made a personal commitment to uphold the following:

  • Using 95% secondhand or recycled materials in my studio (the remaining 5% being hard-to-find renewable supplies like thread, interfacing, etc.)

  • Using 100% recycled and/or compostable shipping and packaging supplies for my wares

  • Selling locally when possible to offset the carbon emissions generated by shipping long-distance

  • Creating functional or heirloom-worthy that can be passed on for generations, thus reducing the likelihood of turning to fast fashion or buying new

  • Employing the Make Do & Mend mentality of our foreparents to help extend the life of usable items
