ARTISAN DETAILS 

We began sewing in the very early days of 2nd Story, way back in 2011. We'd search the stalls in our local open-air market for soft fabrics and interesting patterns. We love purchasing from local businesswomen in our own city. The banter and mom-to-mom conversations are a big part of the exchange!

We'd then take the clothes back to our workshop to be hand-washed, sun-dried, and often cut into a new pieces to become truly upcycled goods that are completely unique. We did this because we saw 2 big problems.

One, textiles from other nations flood the developing world, virtually closing down clothes production in the country. Many of the pieces were not even sellable as they are often dated and had holes or buttons missing, so eventually, they would end up in the landfill. Two, we had talented people who could sew but didn't have jobs.
