Hanging Blossom Baby Jacket - OS
This jacket is made from a chenille bedspread from the 1910s-1930s. The word chenille comes from the French word for caterpillar and refers to a needlework technique that uses fuzzy tufts of yarn.
From the 1910s to the 1950s, the chenille trade flourished across communities in the South and Appalachia. "Tufters," as the makers of chenille called themselves, advertised by hanging their blankets along highways, where tourists would see and stop to purchas them. Hand-mending throughout.
