Born from a compulsion to repurpose absolutely everything in life, from toilet paper tubes to t-shirts and tires,
Total ReFab seeks to capture the essence of living a sound, eco-conscious existence, all while doing it in a fashionably fabulous way.
Combining fashion sense and sensibility; creating products that please the eye and satisfy the heart of the eco-savvy shopper.
Creating and repurposing for an entire lifetime. Turning drab into fab on a continual basis. Crafting since my elementary school days (I once set up a craft table at my parents' yard sale to sell my wares).
Everything deserves a second chance.
Paying honor to the past life of each item by using every possible inch of material that I am working with. My husband's people (the Mohawk) believed in using every part of any animal the Creator blessed them with. In this way, I too, give respect to the Creator and what He has put in my hands to create by using as much of the fabric as I can--When turning a t shirt into a bag, even the sleeves are refashioned into fabric jewelry or baby hats (and the scraps are used as stuffing in other projects).
