This is an authentic, antique American quilt made circa the 1890s-1920s. This quilt pattern is often referred to as a honeycomb. It is hand-quilted and hand-sewn, which is a labor of love and a dying art. This is a textile lover's dream come true. The jacket is a window into the most gorgeous textiles of its era. We have tried to highlight some of our favorites near the end of the listing. For its age, this quilt is in excellent condition. There were a few mends needed throughout, but for the most part, it is extremely stable. The backing of the quilt, inside of the jacket, consists of two different brown and black fabrics. This can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is styled upside down. We have included photos in the listing for your convenience.

Please note: if you suffer from arachnophobia, you should stay away from this quilt as the tag was taken from a 1903 children's book and contains a blood-thirsty vampire spider. We have included an image of the tag near the end of the listing. 

  • In our opinion, the quilt is very soft, very lightweight, with little to no batting (loft). It has a great drape and is very comfortable to wear.
  • This jacket has two clear snaps that disappear into the fabric at the bottom of the shawl collar to help the lapel drape nicely.

  • The Aunt Ethel has slouchy shoulders and a generous fit, keeping in line with its bohemian roots.
  • One Size Fits Most
  • If you have any questions about this jacket please direct message us on Instagram and we will answer your question as quickly as possible. We do not accept returns. If you have any doubt please do not purchase. For sizing questions direct message us via Instagram and we will be happy to send videos showing how our jackets 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 and we believe that makes them perfectly imperfect. This is what makes them a one-of-a-kind piece of art. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend spot cleaning if necessary.
