About Twice Is Nice....
Thank you for your interest in the products that *TINC has to offer. We are a business that is striving to provide great quality denim products from recycled materials. We start with only the best pieces of the denim apparel and utilize them in a practical and attractive manner. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to turn the old into something new.
I grew up in a modest home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. My father and mother both lived through the Great Depression and as a result, did NOT share in the throw-away mentality. Everything could be used again for something. In many ways, the idea of recycling was practiced in our home long before the word was part of our everyday speech, and certainly before the single-stream recycling bins existed.
This type of thinking gave birth to my business, Twice Is Nice Creat-IVES, LLC*.
I have been a seamstress for many years and have found the “grandma stage” of my life to be one of making jean quilts for my grandsons. (With 15 of them, I get plenty of practice.) In 2012, as I was constructing one of my quilts, I kept thinking that there had to be a way to utilize pre-worn jeans for assembling women’s denim skirts in a new, innovative and stylish way. I did not want to make use of the upper pre-constructed section of the jeans in my designs. Using sewing patterns that I owned, skirts in my closet, and my own ideas, I came up with these original patterns.
Although the skirts were my first products, I am regularly developing, designing and discovering new and exciting ways to recycle those old denim jeans. Feel free to browse through the website and contact me with comments, questions and orders.
