One of the shops that best exemplifies the unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind aesthetic I found on my first visits to Asheville that inspired this blog is Royal Peasantry Boutique at 80 N. Lexington.

Here are some pics from their Etsy shop to kick off my new Asheville on Etsy section.

From their company website:

"Our company mission is to combine the creativity and necessity of fashion with the sensibility and direct responsibility for our planet by up-cycling clothing excess that has already been manufactured. We have over the years been recycling thousands of pieces of disregarded clothing and breathing transformative life back into them...We cut, dye, trim, and print to create contemporary and unique and sustainable designs."

Check out the shop for more unique goodness including lots of interesting dresses, metal jewelry, shoes/boots, menswear and leather pieces. Or just take a peek at their constantly changing window for fun item combinations.

Note: though I'd like to credit designers, etc., I'm going quick and dirty with this blog, so if the info is not readily available, I'm rolling with what I've got. That said, I do hope to feature individual designers in the future including all of the people involved with Royal Peasantry.

Got an Etsy Store? Hit Me Up!

I'm going to start an Asheville on Etsy section for fashions and related items created by Ashevillains and sold on Etsy.  The basic idea is to post a group of pics with links to the items.  After they sell or are removed from Etsy, I'll get to keep the pics up for future readers.

If that sounds cool, hit me up in the comments or at the email below:
