Copious launched in 2015, by country girl come fashion designer, Carissa McCaig. It started with 2 collections a year, Spring and Fall, but she soon figured out even for her small fashion line a lot of waste was produced. She started saving all her scrap fabric for a future great idea!
That idea came in 2018 when she launched The Conscious Heart Collection. A comfy, cozy sweater that is also conscious of waste in the fashion industry. Each heart is cut from a scrap of fabric that normally would be thrown away, and there is even a smaller heart inside that stitches through to the back.
This past year Carissa realized how much thrifted clothing was out there and wanted to figure out a way to repurpose it. This is where THREADED was born, a collection of thrifted pieces, that she hand embroiders on to make one of a kind pieces.
