Is a small woman owned and operated Jewelry line using recycled materials sourced from fast fashion manufacturers. Metals are melted down and components are repurposed. Each new piece is thoughtfully and beautifully designed to keep waste out of landfills and to give old adornments new life.
The fast fashion industry mass produces disposable trendy pieces that rarely last longer than a couple of seasons. This culture of consumption is a wasteful and environmentally damaging.
Recognizing that an essential change in production and values is necessary, Tilly Doro reimagined a more sustainable model. Here, we view jewelry as a reusable product where materials are recycled into new pieces.
Tilly Doro founder and designer, Nogah Rotstein, believes in thoughtful design with purpose and responsibility. After years designing for large manufacturers, she now uses leftover or "dead-stock" material and repurposed components ensuring that less waste ends up in landfills. New pieces are designed and hand fabricated using carved wax. Recycled metals are melted down, cast, and then coated in gold plating. All aspects of the process are done domestically in the US.
“My grandmother Tilly was a Holocaust survivor. She taught us that nothing should be wasted or taken for granted. Her favorite gifts were the ones we made by hand and that value has stayed with me.”
Influenced by nature, symbols, asymmetry and balance, Tilly Doro jewelry reflects the spirit of the past within a modern aesthetic.
