It started when her husband accidentally washed her favorite wool sweaters.
Sue Burns didn’t discard the resulting tiny sweaters – she cut them up and created hats for her daughters. People loved the hats and ultimately, it led to a new line of upcycled clothing… Baabaazuzu.
Now Sue, and her production team of 20, takes wool garments that no one wants, puts the garments through a process called felting – shrinking the wool in very hot water – to create a very dense fabric, cuts them up and then creates wearable works of art.
We met Sue at Outdoor Retailer where she gave us a quick overview of Baabaazuzu…
