Crafting Old Rugs Into Jackets, The Designer Taking Sustainability Up a Level | Visits: Makayla Wray


For Makayla Wray, sustainable design is the only route for fashion. Having graduated Fashion Design from The Art Institution of Pittsburgh, Wray’s studio is currently based in New York City where she surrounds herself with creatives who share her vision. As well as collaborating with major labels to promote her sustainable approach, the designer and seamstress has built her own brand that breathes new life into used items.

From crafting rider jackets using an old rug to piecing together a T-shirt from used socks, Wray possesses a talented eye for turning discovered fabrics into stand-out pieces. Explaining the unmatched feeling of connection to her products she explains, “You can get a lot more out of your clothing when you have an attachment to the history and where you got it from. You don’t look like anyone else when you have something that’s one of a kind.”
