Hi, I'm Crispina ffrench. I'm in the business of helping recycled textile artists become successful entrepreneurs.

I'm a recycled textile activist, industry professional, and entrepreneur who has dedicated my life to building a sustainable business by upcycling textiles. I've been doing this work for more than 30 years...long before anyone even uttered the words, "up-cycling" or "eco."

My ultimate goal is to live a beautiful life while reducing global textile waste and show others how to do it too. I've worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry: Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, and Timberland among others.  I share everything I know with recycled textile artists so they can become successful entrepreneurs. And save the world at the same time.
