Full gathered circle skirt with gorgeous lotus welt pockets. Fully lined with brass tack buttons closing the front. The burgundy material came to me in a collection of fabrics my grandmother held onto for years before passing away. The pockets, lining, and waistband feature repurposed materials.
Garbedge Designs is a Brooklyn born brand temporarily based in southern Maine. Created by Kelsey Parker, all Garbedge creations are 100% handmade and ethically sourced with a special emphasis on repurposed and recycled materials--hence the name Garbedge--giving would-be trash a second life. Garbedge creates elegant yet tuff apparel with an emphasis on the perfect fit, durability, utility and a detail-oriented style. Kelsey has done everything from a Victorian-era inspired wedding dress and groom’s wear to heavy duty denim work and lingerie. In addition to original designs, Kelsey offers custom clothing design, clothing copying, and tailoring. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or @garbedgeclothingdesigns on Instagram.
Because Garbedge uses repurposed materials, Kelsey is always accepting donations to pick through. Bed sheets, old clothes, bags & duffels (especially those with hardware like buckles, zippers, clips etc.), belts, drapes & curtains, jeans, Carhartt work pants, and blankets are just some of the items Kelsey covets. Anything that doesn’t get used will be donated to a goodwill or the Portland Root Cellar.
