day tripper... recycled seam ripper!
late 2002, SalvationSacks sprang into existence when margaret,
its creator, was cleaning out her garage and realized that she
had collected decades of fabulous vintage items that she could
not bear to discard - even some 1960s and 1970s clothing that
had been handed down by her mom, and thus cherished all the
more. around the same time, disenchanted with life as a corporate
attorney, she yearned to get back in touch with her artistic
side and use the right side of her brain again. margaret’s
Bulgarian family includes several artists in it and creativity
has always been a big part of her life.
so as margaret pondered the fabrics before her, she noticed
that certain eclectic mixes of fabrics and patterns looked
good together. she decided to reconstruct her collection of
clothing and textiles into wearable art. voila…the 1st
SalvationSack was born!
after a long process, margaret perfected her patterns, prototypes,
and production processes, and SalvationSacks is now in full
gear. margaret loves to mix and match textures that are not
normally seen together (like cotton, boucle, corduroy and
leather). margaret is an avid recycler and enjoys taking the
extra time to make socially conscious, functional and fashionable
wearable creations and save beautiful fabrics with a history
behind them from disappearing forever.
margaret's creativity allows her to mix fabric combinations
so that no 2 SalvationSacks are alike…individuality
at its finest! no other person on the planet will have a bag
identical to yours.
thanks for the interest and support…enjoy!
