Merchants Featured on LivePitch this Week

Rooey Knots is a sustainable fashion brand that takes a menswear item and transforms it into a luxury, one-of-a-kind fashion accessory. It began out of a love for prints, patterns, vintage and thrift shopping. All of the materials are up-cycled, including the suede and leather the company finds from secondhand jackets and the vintage buttons they source from thrift stores. Each piece is hand sewn with special attention to detail. A lot of love and attention goes into the process of creating the products so that customers absolutely love what they get.
