Stella Neptune – Vintage Cashmere

Stella Neptune is a small company that finds some of the older but higher end cashmere and recycles it into refurbished cashmere sweaters and hoodies. Embroidered on almost all of these cashmere garments are patches, which Stella Neptune (aka Eva Kisevalter) has made up herself.

I really like this recycling trend. It is eco-friendly. It is a refreshing direction from the “Fast Fashion” and the dumping of tons of Asian-made cheap and useless garments which end up in our landfills.

I saw Stella Neptune and spoke to Eva Kisevalter at the Vintage Fashion Expo in San Francisco on March 23rd. She was busy sewing and patching. I was very impressed when she told me she learned to do her own die making like in the old fashioned Tool and Die making, which used to be very important in manufacturing for so many years.  However, like manufacturing in America, it, too, has become a lost art.

Just a word regarding the Vintage Fashion Expo, shows like this are becoming more and more popular. Vintage means used, but they are only slightly used and usually of a higher quality. The Vintage Fashion Expos are expanding to more and more cities every year. You should check them out as well as Stella Neptune. Remember to buy American.
