Crafted from a recycled sheet set we screen printed with our depiction of Sappho, a greek lyric poet who lived in ancient Greece, dubbed the "Tenth Muse." As she wrote on papyrus, much of her poetry has been seeded to the sands of time, what remains are poignant fragments of hot non-sense. We chose to include fragment 41––as characterized by Canadian academic and poet Ann Carson––as part of our design.  

*This item is a working prototype and has some aesthetic sewing errors that do not affect the strength of the finished product. Price reflects this. 

This item was lovingly made in our Victoria based studio and took 8 hours to create from table to hanger.

Collapsible content


Since we only use recycled materials the fabric of your garment could range from 5 to 50+ years old and can exhibit signs of wear or age. We see this as part of the unique and delightful charm that only belongs to clothing and textiles with a history that tells the story of each one of kind piece.

We only sell creations we believe have merit and beauty in their design regardless of small blemishes. Obvious imperfections or significant issues will be mentioned in details and priced as-is. 

The kinder you are to your clothes the longer they’ll last so machine wash on a colder cycle with gentle detergent and hang dry if you can. 





We are a proudly anti-corporate manufacturer. Everything is made by the two of us, by hand, slowly, in small batches, using ONLY RECYCLED MATERIALS, creating one-of-a-kind garments and home goods. Explore more.
