More About Poeina – she is a…

Sustainable Fashion Designer

I make things from raw materials and do some reconstruction and upcycling.  I love to use industrial fashion waste to recreate new fashion, upcycled one-of-a-kind, limited editions of clothing, jewelry & accessories.

It’s my way of helping to reduce, reuse, and upcycle many materials that would otherwise be thrown into a landfill.  I’m grateful to all the other fashion vendors who donate their scrap waste for me to use in design and construction.  

Inspired by Nature

It’s estimated that the fashion industry creates 92 million tons of textile waste annually.  “With a little creativity, I hope to be a contribution to the solution.” ~Poeina
