The art of the quilt is a primarily American design. Forced to fruition out of scarcity and necessity. We continue this American tradition in utilizing vintage unfinished patchwork in our designs. Each quilt patchwork tells a story. Most were made from the scraps of leftover fabrics as most clothing was made at home. We honor this painstaking work of collecting and piecing and utilize every single scrap we can. Most of the quilt patchworks we use date from the Edwardian era to the 1960s. A skilled eye can date the piece by finding the most contemporary print in the mix. Many of the patchworks we use date from the 1930s & 40s and are filled with adorable “flour sack” prints. Flour used to be sold in big sacks and they started printing on them so that the fabric would be reused once empty. We love to carry on this old tradition of sustainability. Taking what once was meant to be waste and turning it into fashion.
