This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1890s-1920. It is the traditional Bear Paw or Bear Claw quilt pattern. This piece is extraordinary because it is both hand-sewn and hand-quilted. It is an absolute piece of wearable, American folk art. It contains rare indigos and calicos from its era. 

  • PLEASE NOTE: if you like to wear your Ethel jackets upside down, this piece is a great candidate for you, however, there is an area of sun bleaching on the inside of the jacket which is seen on the last image in this listing.
  • The quilt is a summer weight quilt, meaning, there is little to no batting. It was originally made for aesthetics and not warmth or comfort; however, over the years it has earned its patina and it is extremely soft and has a wonderful drape.  
  • The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
  • 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.
