Mint Field Dress - XS

This dress is made from a chenille bedspread from the 1920s-1940s. The word chenille comes from the French word for caterpillar and refers to a needlework technique that uses 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 the highways. This dress is made from a lightweight cotton bedspread. We preserved the original fringe along the hem.
