About Us


I’ve always admired the creativity and workmanship of artists… the free expression, eagerness to explore and skill set. Unfortunately, none one of which I possess. I am a frustrated artist and curator of in-jeen-yuhs


Ten years ago, I met a woman artist who ingeniously repurposed plastic shopping and department store bags into beautiful and useful totes, zippered pouches and crossbody bags. It was an epiphany!  If one woman could divert materials destined for the landfill, what were other people doing.  And so, in-jeen-yuhs was hatched!


I find artists who ingeniously design wares for your home and for your personal use. I work with mostly women here and abroad in fair trade zones, to showcase a variety of wares that have a story to tell, are repurposed, and made in sustainable ways with minimum waste. The ingenuity of the products we offer is in the beauty and practicality of the design. in-jeen-yuhs  wares are distinctly original, purposeful, and eco-friendly.


 in-jeen-yuhs is an e-commerce site and local pop-up store throughout the DMV

Each ware is individually made and has a unique story. It’s more than just a bowl or backpack. Each has a history, a tale, and a purpose. Buyers usually buy one as a gift and one for themselves, making an instant connection and a shared memory. Our customers are happy to support artists, the environment and taking credit for finding something really unique and ingenious.
