Olio United Online Trunkshow

Portland-based Olio United launched its 100% Recycled Online Trunkshow on March 30th. These ethically-crafted collections highlight handmade, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories by designers who artfully repurpose vintage fabrics and embellishments. The entire 50 piece collection will be viewable on Olio's site for four days only - with free shipping for their newsletter subscribers. Do not miss gorgeous, flirty spring pieces by Armour Sans Anguish, Supayana, Frocky Jack Morgan and AK Vintage - all 'made with love' and proof that recycled couture is a great way to green our lives and personal style.

"At Olio United, we love to share stories with our customers. We believe that people have the right to know how products are made and where they are made. Our mission is to carry products that are aesthetically inspiring and beneficial to people’s lives, from the maker of the product to the consumer. From fashion consciousness to global consciousness, we connect the dots. Quite honestly, we don’t believe that the world needed another retail store . . . it needed one with a better purpose. There are numerous global issues facing us today, and with smart consumer spending and support of local artisans and fairly made products, we can all be an active part of the solution."
