    The Story:

    Moso means “pieces” in Haitian Creole; products in this collection are made up of many pieces of up-cycled fabric. Every month, tons of used and overstock clothing is shipped from developed countries, like the US, to developing countries, like Haiti, where they are either sold by local vendors or sent to the landfill. So, we go to the market where we purchase the clothing from the local vendors. (win #1: local commerce!) We bring them home to the 2nd Story backyard and hand wash each piece in big tubs. Next, we hang them in the sun to dry. Then we bring them to the design table and cut and sew them back together to make each fabulous, one of a kind piece of art. (win #2: providing fair wage jobs!) Because of this, they are no longer destined to be thrown away (win #3: the environment!) and now are going to be given a new home with you! (win #4: fashion!)
