Sue Burns

Sue Burns began making her line of scarves, hats, jackets and stockings after her husband shrunk two of her sweaters. Rather than throwing them out, she made jackets for her two daughters. Soon others were requesting the custom-made pieces.

The business started in the living room, moved to the basement, and then finally got its own store in the village of Lake Leelanau in Michigan.

What began as children's clothing graduated into adult clothing because Burns wondered, "Why do kids get to have all the fun stuff to wear?"

All of Burns' products are made from 100% recycled material, mostly from second hand shops that have too much stock.
