Born and raised in Austin, Miranda Bennett has returned from New York to share her signature style. Miranda Bennett Studio, located in Central East Austin, exemplifies its sustainable mission through using natural, plant-derived materials to dye its wearable apparel. The studio also introduced a zero-waste initiative in 2016 that recycles leftover materials into utility rags, keeping them from ending up in landfills.
In an effort to recreate the feel of a worn in, extra soft t-shirt, Marine Layer produces “tees from trees” through using recycled beechwood pulp to make their signature fiber used to make their t-shirts. Marine Layer also includes Re-Spun, a line of tees produced from old, recycled t-shirts in a completely water-less process.
While contributing to the funky feel of South Congress’ shopping scene, Triple Z Threadz breathes new life into upcycled vintage pearl-snaps by embroidering them into scenes of drunk armadillos or bizarre battles between sharks and gorillas. The embroidery is done with eco-friendly Sakura rayon thread, creating the perfect statement (and sustainability!) piece for any wardrobe.
Originally a nonprofit organization, the brand has a centered focus on creating positive social and environmental change. Raven + Lily works to reduce its carbon footprint through purchasing carbon credits through Wildlife Works, sourcing natural and eco-friendly materials and using recycled products.
Feathers Boutique specializes in hand-selecting chic vintage clothing, as well as reworking the pieces themselves. Next door to Feathers, shoppers can find Prototype Vintage, another vintage clothing store that brings a modern feel to aging apparel. These stores’ thrifted pieces reduce waste and add enduring style to your wardrobe … talk about turning trash to treasure!
