I bring together upcycled neckties and other repurposed materials to make an individual expression you can wear or carry as a bag. The pieces are artistic, fun, unique and glamorous. Most of the neckties are silk though some are vintage polyester, cotton, wool, rayon, and sometimes acetate. Other materials I use are pieces of vintage jewelry and trims, antique buttons, repurposed leather and fabric, salvaged belts, and thread (pretty much the only "new" material.)
There are a lot of discarded or unloved items out there just waiting to be reborn. Rumpelsilkskin designs are my way to make fun and beautiful items using materials we already have. I want everyone to reuse materials so I helped start a creative reuse center in Humboldt County, California (SCRAP Humboldt.)
