About

Welcome! My name is Shelly and I am the creator, owner and one of the makers behind The Muse and I. 

I have a background in fashion design and have worked in the second hand clothing industry for the last 13 years. My love of thrifting, sewing and fashion have all come together to create this brand.

The first recycled collection launched in the fall of 2017 and from there I have expanded into handmade clothing using vintage and recycled materials. My mom, Kim, upcycles the crochet pieces while I focus on the quilt clothes. Together we have a unique team that repurposes discarded textiles into one of a kind, wearable art.  We are inspired by the vintage and recycled textiles that already exist.
