Here’s a little sampling of the first ever aletheia Junkyard collection – handmade streetwear constructed entirely of recycled, salvaged, and otherwise rescued materials. It’s wash-and-wearable, locally sourced, sweatshop- and transport ship-free, super-ethical and chock full of sass. The Hired Hands and I (I pay them in apples and PB) are starting with just Tees, but we’re hoping to expand into shorts and a nice narrow unisex pant as we solve some more creative problems.
This is the real deal. We’ve got labels, hang tags, 2 sergers, a zig-zag, and an aspiring coverstitch, we’ve got freelance graphic artists to pay, it’s serious business.
I’d like to share some more of the vision with you, and work through the raison d’etre of the brand, but for now, just have a look and say what you think. As a work-at-home Mom, I’m sure you can guess how I’m dying for feedback.

I’m brushing up on my fashion illustration… and realizing that I learned nothing about babies and children in my illustration coursework. My textbooks have nothing, and the web is pretty scant on information, too. I think I’ve decided that a 12 month old is 4 heads, and a 2T is 5. Anyone know a resource for childrenswear illustration?? I’m thinking of turning to kids’ books for answers.

Here’s a relic from the little bird days, my old parent brand name that I wasn’t sold on – one of the few SOFT GOODS garments that didn’t sell. Let me know if you have a home for it! It is a 6 mo size that could also probably fit a 3 month old, and convert to a mini or a tunic for up to 18 mo, if your gal is trim.
SOFT GOODS is a collection of dressy fashions for baby made of recycled/salvaged vintage wovens. Look for more to come, now that Michael is out of his first year. Woo Woo!

Michael endured his first photoshoot today. I’m trying to get a few things photographed before they won’t fit anybody.
I’d say he is a natural model, if it weren’t for the one hundred other photos I deleted.
Well, so much for that.
