Spring Preview or What I've Been Up To ;)

Getting ready for Spring! This is the first peak into what I've been working on lately ;) A collection of sweater hoodies - sleevless and not, and wrap-skirts from Earthia, made of deconstructed upcycled sweaters. I take pride in using pre-loved sweaters, that are, however, the best quality I can find - cashmere, wool, and/or other natural fiber blends, with a very rare presence of man-made fibers (in this case, it's the pattern I'm after). It's my current project, that I'm loving.. choosing colors, putting together patterns, deciding on the design.. all of it makes me happy, so, I believe, the sweaters carry some of the artistic magic in them ;) Each hoodie is unique and hand-made by me. I gladly will make such an item to order (your sweaters or my finds - you choose) ;) Contact me here for now, if you wish to buy one of these or order your very own custom-made hoodie, as I'm in the process of setting up and updating my Etsy shop. 

I also wish to mention KatWise, a lady, who I find inspirational - a free spirit, a burner and all.. she has a wonderful shop on etsy KatWise
thank you, Kate, for being who you are!


 The Green Beastess
Wool blend, cashmere, virgin wool cardigan with extra long pixie hood.

Applique and ruffled bossom decoration on the back, long tie belt, which can be tied in the front or on the back loose or into a pretty ruffled bow, so many variations, very unique! Oh, and did I mentioned, that the dots on the sweater have dimension? Psy-fairy, this is for you, if you're sized S, maybe slim-armed M, who like their sweaters tight ;)










 More hoodies and wrap-skirts below!


 La Mermaid 
Dreamy turquoise and blue, creamy buttery white (cashmere), gentle flowers (wool blend) are offset by heather, almost tweedy gray (wool)..
Ruffles in the back, attached tie ruffled belt, that can go around, or simply be tied in the back, with loose ends, or front in a bow.. Extra long pixie hood, no closure for more variations! ;) This one is for blue-lovers, no doubt! Sized S or tight M












 Barbie Circus
This has angora, virgin wool, felted wool (that pretty pink!) and cashmere in it. Sleevles, with lovely double ruffled detail instead, looks like little wings! Leafy bottom details.. a "tail" in the back..Pretty long stripy hood with with a touch of silver sparkle on some of the stripes..Without closure, just the two ties on top - for more variations ;)
Size S-M











Shady Business
Cashmere, virgin wool and wool blend! Blue diamond pattern makes the hoodie stand out, as does this awesome shade of yellow? green? you tell me ;))) Sweater has no closure, only the two long ruffled prettiest ties - wear it open or tie it up and cinch with your favorite belt or scarf..over a tiny tank top, t-shirt or a sweater.. over a bra! so many options ;)
Size S-M









Bust Out
Although, sized S-M, this one has a nice sexy decollate, in case a girl is extra gifted by mother Nature ;) Two fine-wool ties bring the two sides together making space for lovely cleavage! Almost entirely made of cashmere, extra ruffles on the tiny cap-sleeves with looong pixie hood! Cute not overly loud pattern makes it wearable with many more items from your wardrobe ;)
Size S-M

One word about these skirts, that are entirely my design, before I encountered any kind of upcycled creations.. Versatile!
