Kimono/ Shadow

One of my favorites of the EKO designs. It was inspired by a depression-era quilt, in tatters but still eloquent, owned by dear friends. The menswear flavor recalls the frugal years when textiles were kept in service long after their original use. The design honors the Asian wrapping cloth, made from the diagonal scraps cut from a kimono sleeve. Nothing goes to waste.mixed textiles, machine pieced and quiltedQueen bed quilt
