This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1900-1920s. It is the traditional Churn Dash quilt pattern. This piece is extraordinary because it is masterfully hand quilted and hand pieced, which is a labor of love and a lost art. This is one of those jackets that holds a lot of significance and history. The back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) is made with flour or feedsack fabric and we were able to preserve the brand of the sack company which you will see on the inside of the jacket. It is such a beautiful window into the very first upcycling. We consider this quilt to be extremely light weight, thin, and very soft. There are five wooden and brass buttons that act as closures down the front of this jacket. Please see measurements for fit.

Please note that all of our jackets are made from antique quilts and the fabric reflects this. Our fabrics are sometimes older than 100 years old and are perfectly worn. We believe this is what makes them special and is part of their charm. All of our garments are pre-washed in special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
