I started Recycled Originals in September 2001, making handsewn home furnishings from old or discarded clothing and fabrics. By November 2001, I began making handpoured candles in recycled containers and taking them to the craft shows with us. Well, the candles quickly became a big hit and I made them for many years. Over the years, my product line expanded to include body lotions, wax tarts, votives, jelly jar candles, tealights, aroma beads, pillar candles, lip balms, etc. Due to increasing supply costs we are currently phasing out out jar candes, palm wax tealights and handmade air fresheners.
Over the last five years, I went back to my roots and brought handsewn items back to the business. I am making utilitarian totes from beautiful commercial vinyls, leathers and upholstery fabrics.
I now offer a limited number of my bags and accessories on Etsy for the benefit of my out-of-town customers.
