About the Shop
McKenna Paints is a shop that sells funky and whimsical wearables made from 100% recycled fabric. The fabric is recycled from a variety of used items from secondhand stores (i.e. dresses, pants, shirts, linens, curtains, etc.) and then stiffened to hold its shape. Additionally, certain wearables are hand painted. These wearables have lots of color and pattern, and are all nickel and lead free.
