As its name implies, Surplus specializes in jewelry made from unwanted scraps of steel and other discarded items. Harriet McNamara creates all of her pieces by hand, transforming found materials into stories worth wearing.
Helsinki-based designer Terhi Pölkki infuses her line of vegan-leather shoes with pops of unexpected color and fun patterns. Made in Portugal, the brand has a minimalist aesthetic that focuses on quality materials combined in a bold, almost futuristic manner.
SPECIALTY DRY GOODS
Specialty Dry Goods keeps unnecessary waste out of the landfill by turning castoff textiles into quality accessories. Edie Kahula Pereira makes use of a range of materials such as remnant cotton canvas, surplus denim, vegetable-tanned hide, and American-grown organic wool fill to create long-lasting purses, clutches and pouches.
