Hello everyone! I am so excited to finally be able to share this project with you. Over the last couple of months, I have been hard at work on a new phase of the blog and my online shop Botique i2s. I present to you my first collection created by yours truly.
After constantly being bombarded by very nice designs that make my mouth water, I finally took the bold step of making said clothes available. Botique i2s seeks to give new life to vintage and previously owned clothes by updating them into the latest trends in a process referred to as upcycling. I believe this is Kenya’s first store whose clothes are made entirely out of upcycled clothes (correct me if I am wrong).
Recycling is very important particularly in this day and age when our streets are filling up with trash and the garbage dumps are reaching their tipping point. Botique i2s wants to join in the recycling movement in an effort to preserve our environment. And what better way to do it than with something we all love! The markets are filled with clothes that could have great potential if only someone would give them a bit of attention. After witnessing pretty cool vintage clothes getting rejected more than once, I have decided to rescue them and allow them to live a few more years.
Without further ado, here is my very first collection. Some of these clothes have made an appearance on the blog before. Those that are available for sale will be tagged as such and if you want something similar please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. Remember due to the nature of the original clothes, it may not be possible to get the exact item of clothing twice but similar styles will be available.
