The PEACES mission is to create sustainable markets and systems for handcrafted and recycled clothing, accessories and décor, that will contribute to the development and economic well-being of our community.
Many years ago, while volunteering for a non-profit community thrift store, I observed the number of items and bags that had to be discarded due to slight defects. I thought, what a waste. I knew there had to be a way to utilized the discarded fabric t save it from the landfill and transform it into useful items. That's when the idea of PEACES was born.
Today, I am dedicated to making, creative, eco-friendly fashion. At PEACES we believe that one of our greatest powers is the ability to create. It is not just in some of us, it is in each, and every one of us. The wisdom of our elders and ancestors, "waste not, want not," help to guide our vision. In a time when fashion trends lean toward fast and disposable, we value the time, detail and care it takes to handcraft and item. In addition to beauty, I strive to embody the spirit of usefulness and resourcefulness in our designs. Where some see scraps and trash, we see bags and wraps. The PEACES principle is "All things have value when united for a productive and peaceful purpose!
We nurture our ability through the transformation of new and recycled fabrics and textiles into an eclectic array of beautiful bags, accessories, clothing and décor, featuring our signature product, the PEACES fashion tote.
PEACES provides quality products with a personal touch. Since our designs are not mass produced, we are able to hand select patterns and materials for each piece, primarily from re-purposed fabrics. Due to our enthusiasm for the time-honored tradition of sewing, we pour our love into every stitch of every design to create an eclectic collection that makes a social statement and helps you express your unique style.
What is "pre-loved"? Simply put pre-loved is clothing or accessories that someone loved before you. Whether vintage or gently-used, we offer quality and stylish pieces that are sure to compliment your wardrobe and enhance your fashion style.
So save these clothes from the landfill and give them a loving and stylish home!
