Urban Renewal (The name says it all)

Brought to you by Urban Outtfiters (I love to stumble upon these unique pieces in Urban Outfitters!):
The Urban Renewal line has been in our stores for over 20 years. Now it is finally available online. These exclusive limited editions are handcrafted from vintage, deadstock and surplus materials — all sourced from rag mills around the world. The results are completely unique: Kennedy-era bed sheets are redesigned into one-of-a-kind dresses while early-80s menswear shirts start over as skirts. It all happens right here in Philadelphia, one piece at a time and entirely by hand. Reconstructed with care, no two of these one-off re-designs will ever be exactly alike. Each item is hand-finished and completely unique, so while the silhouette of a given edition will remain consistent from piece to piece, colors, patterns and details will differ. Though what you see isn't always exactly what you'll get, you're guaranteed a one-of-a-kind original design, crafted by hand and created using vintage, deadstock and surplus materials.
