Heart Flower Kids' Jacket - OS
This jacket is made from an antique quilt, circa 1850s-1890s. The red fabric used to make up the flower was likely a shade called Turkey Red, the first dye color to be made colorfast—that is, that wouldn't bleed when washed and would hold its color over time. That colorfastness can be seen directly in this piece: while the green and yellow fabrics used in the quilt have faded over time, the red still looks vibrant. Hand-mending throughout.
