Glamberger Originals is a startup founded by artist and activist Kate Hamberger with the intent to transform the way that we think about waste.
Kate has been a lifelong thrift store shopper and dumpster diving diva, first out of necessity because she grew up in poverty, and later in life because she realized the environmental impact of consumer culture. The price tags on cheaply manufactured goods do not reflect the true cost of our consumption. Plastic packaging from everyday commodities and textile waste from the fashion industry are among the largest contributors to climate change.
To combat this, Kate redirects fabrics, packaging, discarded clothing and textile goods, furniture, and more from the waste stream into new products. Every accessory and garment from Glamberger Originals is made from salvaged, upcycled, or mindfully selected sustainable fabrics. Every bath and body product is crafted in small batches from ethically sourced and organic ingredients and minimally packaged in recycled and compostable materials. You can feel good not just about supporting a small woman owned business with your purchase, but you can also know that every step of the way Kate has taken every precaution to ensure that your items were produced in the most eco-conscious way possible, and she is always seeking to improve. And all of this while making quality products that you will be proud to own.
