excerpt from niathomasny.com : "Her collections bring into fruition wearable art that is made with recycled or reclaimed materials that have been extracted and reconditioned for a new use. As close to 70% of her clothes are made out of “deadstock” fabrics, since textiles make up almost 6% of the trash entering U.S. landfills every year. She buy’s verified old, leftover, and over-ordered fabric from other designers and fabric warehouses. This allows her to reuse and divert these materials from landfills and into your closet. With the use of biodegradable garment labels she tries her very best to minimize the flow of waste. Any fabric she feels the need to dye is dyed with 100% organic plant-based dyes and rain water.
She presented her latest collection, MAROC, in NYFW. While traveling in Morocco she sourced fabrics made by Berber artisans using age-old techniques that are rooted in regionally specific traditions. Created by hand and demonstrating the unique skill of the artisan, she supports one-of-a-kind pieces in a world of homogenized mass production."
