I completely deconstruct the jeans, make fabric, and then cut out and make new garments.
I am (now and for the past couple years) so very inspired by Natalie Chanin. I first found out about her work when I was looking for hand sewing books to share with a co op class. Its kinda ironic, because she is dedicated to preserving hand sewing techniques and I'm sewing by machine, as fast as I can. I sometimes think I'm going to sew something by hand, but I get impatient and it never happens.
I've been looking for and found some information online to move my business to a more professional level. It is all stuff I know. I guess I'm really gonna have to listen now. No more hope marketing.
I'm getting off topic! Recycled is what I think I'm doing, but what do my potential customers think I'm doing? If they are going to find me, I need to use the proper terms. Its something that I'm working on. Things take time around here. Four little boys take up a lot of my time. It will happen a little slower than it should. I'm getting ready to write down a business plan.
