Pieces of Eco-Goodness

Eco-fab sweaters handmade by Michelle Bergeron-Mok at Mod to Modern in Vancouver...

"I like to take things apart then I like to mix them up then I like to reassemble them.
Then I hang them up and stare at them..."

All different types of abandoned wool sweaters are deconstructed and lovingly recycled into one-of-a-kind pieces. Up to eight salvaged sweaters can be used in one of her unique sweaters... a garment that is transformed from mod to modern. A gorgeous collage of textures and colours form these chic re-styled pieces of eco-goodness. Stunningly beautiful... and pleasantly kind to our Mother Earth. So eco-cool!

Winter Blossoms
"A pretty print of greens and blues is set against my solid front panel of darkest teal. The lovely shrug collar is patterned with dots of browns and blue in the same color family. The cuffs are extra long and are teal wool as well. To finish, the back is grey ribbed knit against green/blue back sleeves"
Deers for Fears
"My sweet family of deer will always keep you company as you travel the byways. The bottom section of the front panel and the sleeve cuffs are my favorite, dark coral. The sleeves are very dark gray and my shrug collar is a slighly lighter shade of coral to underlight your pretty face. The back sleeves are a pretty pink to accentuate the ribbed gray back panels"
Petals on Sand
"A very feminine cupcake of wooly delight! My matching waistband and collar of grey and dark pink petals is set against a gray front panel. Meanwhile, pretty buttons march up one sleeve. The dark coral back and the ribbed gray back sleeves finish the look. Delightful indeed..."

Green Scene Queen
"See the single pine! Not just for winter wear, so pretty in spring too! The 3/4 length front sleeves are gray whilst the back sleeves are dark hunter green. The stylin' continues on the back with striped gray and cream panels. Fresh!"
