This shirt is made from a rare 1920's red and white 9 patch quilt top. When quilts are made sometimes they are never finished, or later in their life they are deconstructed and the backing is removed. This peice was originally a full quilt with a cotton red backing made by a commissioned quilter in Alabama. It was deconstructed by its second owner with the intention of removing the parts that show wear and creating a rennovated piece. The owner never got around to it and left it sitting in the attic for years. Its new life and story begins again with this long sleeve collared shirt.
Hand bound red button holes and natural corozo buttons.
- Eight buttons
All idiosyncrasies, mending, and wear are unique to the original textile.
