Altered Ego, LLC is a clothing alterations business on a mission for textile sustainability and community enrichment. We provide quality clothing alterations and repair services to the Palouse region at a convenient storefront location on Main Street in Moscow, Idaho as well as sewing classes and a sewing studio for individuals who want to sew without investing in expensive machinery. We have been serving Moscow since 2014.
At Altered Ego, LLC we fix it for you, teach you how to fix it, or provide the resources you need to fix it yourself. This is our little way of keeping some of the 21 billion pounds of textile waste out of our landfills each year.
