Each Amalya Meira piece carries a Fable. Process is Paramount. Created using Zero Waste construction, repurposed vintage textiles, mingled in strange harmony with hand printed mohairs, sun stroked silks and leathers are printed with the playful science of Cyanotype. Maternal sterling silver adorns closures, while hand crochet softens. Amalya sees clothing as wearable Sculpture, creating each piece for the curious to love.
All textiles used to create Amalya Meira pieces are natural fibers or up cycled/deadstock textiles, or often both. Production is done solely by Amalya who employs zero waste patterning to construct. Tags and hang tags are also made from scrap fabric. Amalya sources textiles from innovative organizations such as FABSCRAP and Materials for the Arts as well as old favorites Goodwill, Salvation Army and the illusive yard sale. Amalya states that then clothing she creates is much more than her art. She sees her work as an offering, what she can contribute. By putting these items with a certain perspective, that are created with certain ideals in mind, into the world they cannot help but find their way to similar items, and in turn their makers. Whether it be through a like minded project, or a customer who is drawn to her work for more than just surface reasons, these connections are instant and they are strong. This is her effort to lead by example and slowly but carefully build a community practicing conscious living.
