Artfully Crafted Accessories From Recycled Sweaters
Ever wonder what you could do with an old sweater? Marilyn Roberts, Founder and Designer of Jack & Mary Designs, did…and then she put her idea to work.
Marilyn began the company in 2004. She started out offering bags and purses. Then, a custom order brought back memories of her mother, who would recycle clothing into new items. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she began using sweaters (even the ugly ones) to upcyling them into scarves, hats, bun warmer skirts, and her now famous Memory Mittens. These sweaters, that would have ended up in landfills, are now re-purposed into designer items in her studio located in York, Main.
“Sweaters are cut, and colors and patterns are creatively placed together in a pleasing manner that is then sewn into a finished product. Jack & Mary Designs was named after Marilyn’s parents, as she and her company are the perfect combination of both style and practicality.”
