UPCYCLED PIECES

Revamp old articles of clothing and let your individuality shine through with an original personalized piece.

For those seeking to elevate a pre-existing apparel item from ordinary to special.

Commission artist-designer Shelby Donnelly to create an original, one-of-a-kind design on your already-existing garment, transforming it into an art piece. This is an additive artisanal process — refashioning, upcycling, reworking achieved through textile art, embroidery, needlepoint, hand-dying, adornment, embellishment, decoration, and appliqué. It is a collaborative experience that starts with an artist consultation, and results in a custom collaged garment.
