Copabananas - I repurpose familiar items and hope it makes people look at them in a new and greener way. Whether it's cardboard packaging, plastic shopping bags, vintage sewing patterns, or lost gloves, I'm always making something new from something used in an effort to green our lives.
Ellis Designs - I officially launched the company in 2000 with a collection of hand knit accessories for women. Since then, the line has expanded to include hand knit accessories for the whole family, sunhats, hand dyed silks and hair accessories.
Knit Knit - I use yarn from a family owned yarn mill in Nebraska that now uses 90% less water in their yarn production. Go green! Other materials are purchased at local or US based supply shops & small businesses. Yarn and fabric scraps are saved for future projects so that every little bit gets used. I also ship via USPS Priority Mail for domestic orders which uses recycled cardboard for their packaging.
