Get Your Quilt On… with Quilted Clothing

Quilted clothing actually came before quilted blankets — hieroglyphs in Egyptian tombs show people wearing stitched together layers as early as 3500 BCE.** That means, for more than 55 centuries, quilted items have been found in the closets of the most chic fashionistas.

An insulated and durable quilted jacket is a common outerwear choice when the temperature dips each winter; you’re bound to stay cozy and comfortable wearing one. But warmth isn’t the only feature you get with a quilted jacket. Stunning options are available to dress up the most casual outfit, many decorated and embellished to the point that they almost become wearable art. Even some of the biggest names in fashion – think Armani or Balmain – sell quilted pants and skirts. The rich, textured appearance of quilted fabrics is a natural fit for luxurious designer brands.

More Inspiration…
Perhaps the most iconic way to wear quilts, though, is with a purse. Accessorize with a custom quilted clutch for an evening on the town, a quilted backpack for a brisk country hike or a quilted tote for every day… any of which can be custom made just for you by
