Recycled cashmere bangle bracelets, recycled cashmere wraps and cover-ups, and even recycled luxury cashmere dog sweaters are all part of the spring 2009 collection from Vintage Creations. The ladies over at Vintage Creations aren't just making new sweaters from old sweaters, they're outfitting every aspect of your accessory world with cashmere. Yum!The materials for the sweaters all come from scottish cashmere sweaters that are unused, discarded or factory waste and are all hand-made in Seattle. In total over 1,000 sweaters are saved from landfills each year through the cashmere recycling program at Vintage Creations. Sweaters come in a variety of shapes and styles with v-necks, 3/4 length sleeves, patterns and solid-tones. Plus you can also get cashmere caps, and scarves. In fact, you can almost cover yourself entirely in cashmere, and feel as soft as a bunny all day long.
Owner and creator Beth Nielsen has a history of making, fun fashionable designer clothing from recycled silk, cashmere and other high-end materials. You can find the clothing online at her eco-friendly website EkoChic as well as retailers across the US and Canada. Right now on EkoChic - all cashmere sweaters are on sale. The sweaters can also be found in Nielsen's brick and mortar store, Violette, on 212 1st Avenue South in Seattle, WA, where you can find more recycled and vintage goods including handbags made from recycled leather pants and jackets. Bonus - free shipping on all orders.
