I'm a sucker for upcycled denim. In fact, that vest in the preview image is one that I purchased for my own child. And no one does one of a kind upcycled awesomeness like Dominique of Ari and Ali.
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I’m Dominique. I’m a wife and mom of 2 boys. I am a pediatric respiratory therapist by trade who loves to make fun things in her spare time.
I loved making OOAK things and people always loved what I made so I stared to create things for other people.
How did you choose the name?
My boys middle names.
Why is upcycling important to you?
It helps reduce waste and I love turning something old into something new.
What inspires your creations?
Whatever I’m loving at the moment.
I want to start making my own pins to add to my creations.
What has been your favorite design?
Black boy joy vest.
