About Garbedge Clothing Designs
Garbedge Designs uses repurposed and reclaimed materials to fashion new garments out of old. While the initial dream was to use only repurposed fabrics, I simply receive too many orders to stick to the original vision. Though the materials used to make some of the items in my shop may have been used before--the finished products are brand-new. Not only are Garbedge clothes eco-friendly, functional and fashionable, they also come with a story attached. The genealogical origins of each garment accompany every order--not only will you know where the pieces of your purchase have been and what they used to be, but you will get to know who they once belonged to. Whether I am rummaging through free bins for old bed sheets, or seem-ripping the cast off Carhartt pelts of my once-landlord, stripping fly-zippers from thread bare pants, or digging through roadside free-piles, I am always on the prowl for materials. This is Garbedge, where trash becomes treasure.
