Rags and Patches
We’ve seen a lot of suit fabrics, but we’ve never seen them quite like this.
This bedspread was made from sewing together old suit fabrics, so if you’ve ever felt the need to sleep under Italy’s finest threads, you just got your chance. The full set includes a bed cover, a duvet cover and a pair of pillowcases, and they only have as much fabric as they can scrounge up, so each piece is one of a kind. Of course, that also means a single set will run you upwards of three grand, but it’s not too much more than you’d pay Paul Smith for a few suits.
The brilliant mind behind this bit of repurposing is Variegated, a Hudson Valley arts studio specializing in textiles, but if you don’t feel like making the trek to the Catskills, you can pick it up in New York at the newly opened West & Green.
We’re still waiting for a seersucker model, but we won’t need it until summer.
