Sitting still and being in the moment are not things that come easily for me. Constant motion and scattered thoughts are more my style. The softly worn fabrics and faded colors of this blanket coat remind me to slow down and breathe.
Similar to walking into church services when the kids were little. Going through the doors, drawing in a breath, feeling calm and present. A reset from the chaos of getting the family ready.
Looking for shoes under beds, realizing that your daughter no longer likes orange juice with her breakfast, trying to get the dog inside, everyone complaining that you're always the last one to be ready ... (wonder why). The quiet tension in the car. Then taking your little's hands, feeling your husband's arm around your shoulders. Smiles slowly replace pursed lips. Life is good.
This muted red blanket coat is my reset. A reminder to let go of the hurried moments and to appreciate the calm.
I have an obsession with blankets. Beautiful, hand stitched, repurposed textiles speak to me. There's something special in wearing fabric that was intentionally made to protect and comfort someone.
The shape isn't tailored. It's not supposed to be. You're wearing a blanket. It's that good. And yes, there are pockets.
Every coat is one of a kind. Made from vintage fabrics stitched by hand, your piece may have markings or worn areas that we find make our coats even more desirable.
Dry Cleaning or Spot Cleaning is recommended.
If you choose to launder your blanket coat, we suggest hand washing or washing on a delicate cycle.
