Our Story

In 2013, owner and creator Liz started sewing as a creative outlet. Around that time, she started learning about the terrible practices in the fashion industry. 

The Delicate Tension was formed in 2014 out of a desire to recycle textiles to keep them out of landfills and to use those textiles to create new, quality pieces for eco-conscious folks around the world. 

The Delicate Tension is a social enterprise that uses recycled textiles from previously loved items to create unique, one of a kind pieces for the environmentally conscious consumer. Together, we are keeping fabric out of landfills, taking care of the planet, and keeping our lives full of classy creativity. No matter what we're making here, we aspire to create pieces that have a positive impact on the environment and the people who use them.
