Upcycle Your Old Wool Sweaters

Serene Mastrianni and guest co-host Susie Weekes introduce a new concept in recycling…upcycle.  Green living just got better, meet Wendy Akroyd, founder and originator of Artemesia Studio.  After a short stint studying Fashion Design at FIT in NYC, Wendy decided to upcycle fashion by incorporating salvaged material into ordinary everyday  items.  The result is an amazing original collection that brings back to life your “grandmothers” curtains.  If you think that old wool sweater in your closet is a piece of garbage, think again it provides enough material for a whole outfit, including “flared” leg warmers.  Visit Wendy’s one of a kind creations at www.artemesiastudio.com which features functional bags, clothing accessories and more.
