Green Monday

Blog, Art, Fashion, newsletterMary Colmar

Green Monday is today which I automatically interpreted as shopping for greener products but it is actually about shipping time before X-mas to make some green before it is too late.

If only it was the time everyone bought green goods, products that help the planet and the quality of life for all.

Today there is an Upcycle Summit in downtown LA, The Inaugural Upcycle Gathering featuring a litany of people determined to help the planet through innovative ideas focusing on upcycling in construction, agriculture(compost) and commerce.  The tagline for the summit is how to keep everything out of the landfill.

The Fall Blouse.

The Blouse is perfect for casual comfort. 

The Blouse is made from those shirts in the back of your closet doing their best to be kept out of the landfill. All the blouses are cut for simple comfort and artful color combinations. There are no two alike but all are uniquely the same. 

Jane looks so cute we had to put her here!

It all started when...


Working my whole adult life in the fashion industry as a Designer/Patternmaker/Technical Designer for iconic fashion brands is where I learned the skills.

The creativity afforded by the deconstruction movement lead me to become an Artwear Artist. My work made its way into art exhibits while I sold my wares at Artisinal Craft Shows, and Museum Gift Shops. I became an expert on recycled fashion and was asked to judge contests and the like. 

First Newsletter of the Year with more opportunities inside.

The new year is on its way and is proving to be an interesting time in America. On another note we have had rain in California that I love. But all that aside I would like to thank all of you who have purchased clothes from me. You seem to share a kindred spirit or simply a love of fashion and I am grateful. Thanks to those of you who have stopped by the studio to check things out and see the latest creations. One new customer wants to buy one a month.
