Wave Chenille Kids' Shirt - OS
This shirt is made from a chenille bedcover, circa 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, where tourists could see and stop to purchase them. Hand-mending throughout.
