Recycled Indigo Tote Bag

I started out making t-shirts on the floor of my dorm room freshman year of college. Just like with any creation, not every t-shirt would turn out perfect. As I learned what worked and what didn’t, my pile of t-shirt mess ups would grow over the years. I couldn’t bring myself to throw these mess ups away, especially considering all the hands one t-shirt has to pass through in its various stages of production - growing the cotton, harvesting the cotton, weaving it into fabric, cutting, sewing, etc.

Fast forward 6 years later: my business has evolved and grown into something completely different than what it was back in 2014 and my collection of mess ups is overflowing. Recently I’ve been brainstorming new uses for these “mess-ups”. Perhaps waste doesn’t have to be waste at all but rather a building block for something new. I’ve been experimenting with dyeing these tees with indigo (an earth friendly plant dye) and sewing them into reusable tote bags. Big enough to carry a decent amount of groceries and easy to throw in the wash, these are great for trips to the grocery store. Take a peek inside and you can get a glimpse of the t-shirt that almost was.


Since each piece of fabric is hand dyed, there will be some unique variation in each tote bag. 

Together we have planted over 1,500 trees with our partner One Tree Planted.

Because even something you order for yourself should be special. We choose to send all orders in compostable packaging, either made from corn starch or cardboard. Our corn starch mailers are home compostable and break down into carbon dioxide, water, and organic fertilizer in about 90-180 days.

Conventional plastic mailers can take decades or even centuries to break down. When they do finally break down, tiny bits of microplastics are released into the environment. No thank you!
