A few months ago, I was scrolling through a search on Instagram under the hashtag, “reuse.” All of a sudden, I came across something made with T-Shirts that I had never seen before: baby onesies! And they weren’t just solid color T-Shirt onesies. There were Ghostbusters onesies, Bob Marley onesies, and so much more. And when I went to the website connected to these images, I found even more: children’s leggings and pants made from T-Shirts too! I just had to reach out to the person behind these amazing pieces: Alix Joyal.
Alix has been sewing for over 25 years and conveniently has a college degree in Textile Manufacturing and Marketing, as well as in Fashion Merchandising; both from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. A few years ago, Alix got her start creating onesies and toddler pants for her two children. And as the story goes, people saw them, people loved them, so Alix began selling them.
For the past few months, when I found downtime from the documentary, Alix and I have been going over the possibilities. And today I’m excited to finally announce our collaboration and release the first pair of STAY VOCAL Harem Pants by Joyaltee. This one of a kind pair was made with one of the Water Saver Where There is Love T-Shirts.
Stay tuned. There’s much more to come…
