Magpies & Peacocks Inc. is dedicated to the collection and sustainable redesign of upscale fashion and accessories. Working with local students, up-and-coming designers and artists in the Houston area, we create unique curated up-cycled collections from formerly fabulous donated items. The money raised from the sale of our collections supports the organizations programs and community grassroot causes.
All the pieces in our collections start their lives as donations from one of our Closet Deposit events. People are encouraged to make tax-deductible donations of anything from purses, bags and jewelry, ties, scarves and belts through to the broken, orphaned and tangled – in fact anything new, broken, inherited, re-gifted, ex-husband, vintage, or even just a-good-idea-at-the-time works for us! We also collect expired textile samples, leather off cuts, ends of fabric bolts, trimmings and abandoned dry cleaning apparel to form our raw material inventory.
