Sun Grove Kids' Shirt
This shirt is made from a chenille patterned bedspread from the 1920s-1930s. The word chenille comes from the French word for caterpillar and refers to a needlework technique that uses tufts of yarn which flourished across the South and Appalachia from the 1910s to the 1950s. "Tufters," as the makers of chenille called themselves, advertised by hanging their blankets along the highways, causing tourists to stop and inquire about them.
This bedspread was tufted on a pale green ground with yellow and green chenille yarn. Hand-mending throughout.
- Boxy fit

All wear, mending, and idiosyncrasies are unique to the original textile.
