Designer Daniella Miller is a recent Asheville transplant, but her line of recycled apparel, mostly fashioned from found and donated items, dates back to 1999. The More Than Mammal label (as well as Miller’s line of appliquéd tees and sporty clothing called Hemp Score) are now available at Haberdashery (70 College St., Asheville, 252-2878). Local lines Tegonia and Rainbow Black are also available.
Xpress photographer Jonathan Welch captured Miller's distinct looks.
