Patchwork Review

Patchwork (and multi panel) garb is hard to find these days. A few cool examples kick out of eBay, Etsy and Japanese web shops. For me, these items live as visual reminders of the endless ways to create variations on a classic design. Lesson learned: don’t bring out a million products, just find ways to tweak and play with the material and fabric variations of your star player. Here are a few of my favorite patchwork finds from the internet, my own image archives and the original Archival line (I can’t even remember to whom we sold those bitonal packs). I tend to revisit these on an annual basis in hopes that more examples will drift my way. Send me snaps and examples!
