OUR VISION IS SIMPLE…
To blend sentimentality with sustainability as we use these precious, scarce vintage chenille fabrics to tell a story of our great American textile history. Once omnipresent in homes across the country during the 1930s-1950s, chenille fell out of fashion in the decades thereafter. By the 1980s and 90s, they found their way to thrift stores, auction houses, and “rag factories,” allowing a new generation of enterprising women to re-envision these once-loved textiles.
Today, quality chenille has become very challenging to source in any condition, which presents a design challenge we’re up for. The benefit of this design is in its sustainability – all garments wear eventually and many are simply discarded. Lost your belt tie? Snagged the hem? Facings a bit worn? Simply infuse your own creativity & add to the shabby patchwork look with a patch here, a patch there…and let these surprisingly durable fabrics take on new life, tell a new story…yours…
