Renegade Craft Fair Finds
Sharing some of my favorite shops I found while exploring the Renegade Craft Fair in downtown LA last weekend 🙂
I am so happy I discovered this company! All of their items are made from materials that usually end up in landfills; beer filter cloth, and climbing rope from local gyms, etc. Not only are they making fashionable, long lasting bags; but they’re doing their part to reduce waste and lower carbon footprints. The bags are priced similarly to leather goods, and instead of causing harm to the environment – they help reverse it. Pennies well spent if you ask me!
“IN THE RIGHT HANDS, FASHION CAN BE BOTH AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY AND A TOOL FOR POSITIVE CHANGE.
REBORN REWILDER.” – Rewilder Site
Hanna Hayes is a local designer who creates handmade pieces that are either one of a kind, or vintage reproductions. I’m kind of obsessed with the whole vintage reproduction aspect of her work. It’s such an amazing idea, taking back classic beauty with clothing styles from our past.
More than just a simple and classy tee. JOLN creates clothes form reclaimed and restored fabrics. Yay for another company using pre-existing materials! I love love love when fashion is also environmentally conscious.
Heh. I mean… I want this adorable poster. It looks like something that would be at home in a 1st grade classroom… or on my wall 🙂 So many fabulous prints from Small Adventure – check them out!
Maiden Voyage Clothing
Maiden Voyage has so many awesome and weird shirts and posters! I may have purchased a Loch Ness Monster glow in the dark patch from them as well… basically I love their funky vibes.
I also came across Apricity! If this fabulous dress looks familiar, it’s because I featured this shop in FFT: #6! Seeing the dresses up close and personal in real life was so much fun! 🙂 AND I got to meet the woman behind it all, Eileen Chai, who was just as cute and sweet as her clothing. She told me about how important it was to her to make classic and vintage styled clothing that was everyday wearable. I think that’s a great thing to be conscience of; so many of my vintage pieces feel like too much for anything other than a special occasion. So Apricity gets a double Fridaye’s Favorite Things mention ^_^
Well that’s it for this Friday! Don’t forget to support your local shops and makers 🙂
