adhesif clothing company – upcycled vintage
Melissa Ferreira is the Vancouver designer behind adhesif clothing company. Self-taught, she began her career as a buyer of vintage clothing and was so inspired by the amazing quality and special characteristics of vintage textiles that she started to incorporate them into designs of her making. All adhesif clothing co. designs are made with sustainable fabrics and produced in Vancouver. This Fitzgerald Dress is made of reclaimed stretch wool sweaters (angora and lambswool primarily) and the black and white plaid fabric down the center also has stretch. There is a side zipper and hidden side pockets. The applique on the collar is of teal and black sequins. $168 USD.
This Thelonious Dress is a modern twist on a 1920′s flapper dress. The crest detail on the front of the dress is made of recycled leather and is available in Canary Yellow, Burgundy, Olive Green or Electric Blue. It is fairly straight up and down and has an elastic panel on the back waist. $178 USD. Buy from adhesif’s Etsy shop, ships everywhere.
