Hi. You found me!
Welcome to Luckey ReDo, a line of whimsical, one-of-a-kind, repurposed wearables created by me, Owen Sea Luckey. I am excited by the eclectic mix of interests and skills that have brought me to create Luckey ReDo. Each piece is transformed from the familiar into wearable art combining traditional craft techniques and unique embellishments: antique buttons, scrap wool, floral accents, bursts of color, fur, repurposed fabrics, handknit tendrils and drop stitch lace.
If there is a whisper of familiar in the ReDo line of wearables, then perhaps you have been privy to my hand-knit originals (owensealuckey.com) which include hats, fingerless gloves, mittens, scarves, shawls and decorative collars. For those, I work primarily with a Japanese, hand-dyed wool-silk-angora blended yarn, but also incorporate angora, mohair and cashmere.
The practical function of these pieces combined with their luxurious textures, unexpected colors and imaginative designs creates an air of artistic levity that is a signature in my work.
I began my career with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and have worked both in the apparel and home furnishings textile industries. Upon leaving the manufacturing, corporate textile world, I was an interior design consultant and designed custom home textiles on the world market. Today, I am an innovative artist creating an array of redesigned and hand-knit wearables—for you!
