Patchwork items are the perfect compilations of merging materials and textiles to formulate functional objects and apparel.

Patchwork was popularized in the late 60s and 70s, becoming a staple in bohemian fashion and finds. From furniture to clothing, you still can find patchwork merchandise everywhere. Patchwork pieces can indicate the re-purposing of otherwise discarded materials or a modern interpretation of the idea. Patchwork furniture has grown in popularity over the last few years. The pieces have a vintage feel, while still remaining modern. There is chairs, sofas and even eco-friendly options on the market. As far as fashions go, there are wild and fun pieces from footwear to couture clothing.

Patchwork items are ingenious, visually appealing and make for conversation pieces.
