I've always loved the Vancouver based clothing line Adhesif by Montreal-born designer Melissa Ferreira. I remember visiting her booth at Portabello West years ago and shamelessly hinting to her that I wanted the Adhesif vest SHE was wearing. Did I actually ask for the shirt off her back? How embarrassing.
Actually that's the thing about Adhesif, every piece is one-of-a-kind since everything is made from recycled cloth. So if you fall in love with a piece, be sure to get it there and then - unless the designer is wearing it!
Above are some designs from the Fall 2011 line. Isn't that outfit cute?
Did you know that Adhesive has a shop on Main Street? It's a super cute shop: 2202 Main Street, Vancouver
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
