Who is mialeentje?

I am self-proclaimed 'eco-mamapreneur' Lizanne and I make unique, one-of-a-kind upcycled clothes and accessories for the 'everyday diva' and 'big little men' as well as other eco-minded folks like me! Everything is made by hand, by me, in an off-the-grid studio where even the sewing machines run on solar energy.

When I finally decided to take the plunge and combine motherhood with my own business, I named it after my daughter, Mia Leentje. She is, after all, my muse, my inspiration, the everyday diva herself.

I try to do two collections a year - Spring/Summer and a Fall/Winter - and have an ever-growing choice of custom-made garments to offer. From personalized banners to upcycling mens' shirts into dresses or pillow cases into pants, there really isn't much I can't do with good quality pre-loved clothing and fabrics.

Now, my studio is overflowing with fabrics which I am constantly turning into eco-friendly, extremely wearable, works of art for kids and grown-ups. I've decided to start this blog to share my experiences and hopefully inspire others to do the same!
