My Story

Upcycling. Slow Fashion. Eco Couture. Refashioning. Whatever you call it, I love it!

I started making Jaquitos because I had a t-shirt that didn’t fit anymore, but that I did not want to let go. So I sewed the design onto the back of a denim jacket, and Jaquitos were born!

I love going to thrift stores to find cool t-shirt designs, and the perfect jackets to sew them on.

Fast fashion is just one of many waste problems in this country. We buy cheap, cheaply made clothes that don’t last, then throw them away to buy more.

What I do keeps clothing out of landfills, and creates unique fashion pieces.

Why wear what everyone else is wearing if you can have clothing as unique as you?
