Carla started sewing after her daughter was born. She creates hats and other clothes out of recycled wool sweaters, vintage buttons, recycled fabric, and paint.. Carla loves to give new life to things that would otherwise end up in the landfill. She went to college in New Orleans but spent most of her time absorbing the eclectic style and color of it. That style is reflected in her crazy designs. Carla was born in raised in Pittsburgh, PA and lived in Birmingham, AL for 2 years until her husband's job took the family to Rochester, NY.
