These one of a kind heirloom pieces are handmade in my Marrickville studio with the intention to nurture ourselves and our homes in these challenging times. Created using remnants from clothing production and other salvaged vintage fabrics in a simple bold block pattern that lets the beautiful prints and colours sing. They blend traditional craftswomanship with contemporary style, offering vibrancy and texture to your space.
Each one has lots of colours that will coordinate easily with what you already have, whether you prefer plain bedding or love some pattern clashing. A pair of vintage fabric pillowcases in a coordinating print is included, as seen in the final overhead photos.
This is queen size, but they can be custom made in any size. They can also be sewn with your own bespoke preferences, for example if you prefer more pastel tones, fine florals or bold graphics or want a dash of another colour included, I would love to make one especially for you! Perhaps to tie in with a favourite sheet set or treasured blanket you love.
Once you have selected your size, we will communicate via email to make sure you are happy with the design. As these are all made from a limited supply of fabric, making each quilt different, you must trust my design choices and be open to the element of surprise! I will not be trying to replicate this exact item but provide the same concept and feeling for you. If you prefer to know exactly what you are getting beforehand, in lots of detail as shown in these photos, then you are probably better suited to buying ready-mades as I finish them.
I am anticipating a 3 week turn around for custom orders, with some dependency on Mick who applies the press studs working intermittently during lockdown.
