I am so grateful to have had the happy accident and the opportunity to learn from an incredible conglomerate of women on the internet (who likely have no idea they've taught me anything at all) about sustainability and just how massively the fashion + textile industry contributes to the pollution of our beautiful planet.
Simply by happenstance, I was introduced to sustainable and secondhand fashion; I was immediately in. As I learned more, it became clear how disposable so many of our things are, literally and figuratively. This is a problem because (1) those "old" things all too often end up in landfills and (2) the tons and TONS of water + resources that went into producing those things has essentially been wasted; never mind the treatments & chemicals that go into production pollute clean water + air for the wildlife and communities who need it.
Fast forward, I wanted to make a difference in a way which felt authentic to me; something I could maintain and realistically do. And so I set out to rescue, salvage, repair and restore vintage & preloved pieces - Skylark Place was born!
I wanted to help chip away at any stigma attached to used things, to old things - because sometimes those are the things which are the most special! I wanted to breathe new life into items which had been unfairly discarded; I wanted to highlight their unique beauty, their timelessness, their value.
