This one-of-a-kind item is made of vintage & new materials.  It has been lovingly repurposed by the gifted Lottie Dal to bring comfort & style anew.  This upcycled vest is made from a beautiful hand-pieced & hand-quilted 8 point star quilt in cheerfully colored feed sack fabrics from the early 1900’s.  That pink lining, though!!!  

It boasts minimal imperfections, staining, and wear for a quilt of this era.  The patterns, colors, stitches, and stains enfold treasured memories of days gone by.  They speak of a period of scarcity, when nary a scrap would go to waste.  

 We take great pride in our restoration process which involves soaking and rinsing multiple times in a mild cleaning solution, gently agitating by hand, sunning in the West Texas heat, and finishing with a final bath in Le Blanc French laundry wash.  

With proper care, this heirloom piece will offer many more years of comfort and warmth.  Hand wash, gently wring excess moisture, dry flat, and finish in dryer for ten minutes to restore softness.  

Returns are gladly accepted within 3 days of delivery.
