We believe in sustainable fashion

Our Story

As much as possible, we aim to reuse, upcycle and redesign existing materials. The fast fashion industry maintains low prices but cutting corners on quality, underpaying employess and unethical practices. We aim to do our part by being a positive force in the industry by maintaining slow, old fashined but high quality sewing. 

It all started when, after years of being a homemaker and full time educator, I was feeling worn down and tired. I was lost, bored and frustrated with the mundane hustle and bustle of life.

Then I found a chair. It was as tired and worn down as I felt but I knew I could breathe new life into it. I watched as it changed and took on a life that was bright, colorful and refreshed.

I had found a way to renew my creative side that has been so long neglected and so Up-cycled life was born. The theme of refreshing and renewing soon began to create the philosophy I am embracing in both my spiritual and daily life.

These days, the vintage chairs seem to find me and I enjoy the challenge of giving each and everyone a story and new beginning. Some chairs simply get restored while others get a new life as a whole new home décor accessory. I love custom making vintage pieces for my clients, so if you have a piece in mind, don’t hesitate to reach out!

Because life is about others and constant renewal, I will soon be offering webinars, tutorials and classes to teach others how they can also use furniture rehab as their own way of upcycling their life from something old and worn to something new with purpose.
