Cloth has a lot of life in it.
T-shirts are the quintessential American classic- it is a staple in almost anyone’s wardrobe. We brand ourselves with our favorite people, phrases, bands, brands, and beliefs when we wear a printed T-shirt. But what happens to them when they no longer fit, or we move on to the next one?
Storing them takes up a lot of space, and you don’t really see them. Sometimes the cloth is still like new and can get more use. But donating them doesn't necessarily mean they will end up going to someone else, and we don't want to throw them away. Lots of time, these are sentimental items that meant something to us at one time, but not everyone wants or can use a t-shirt quilt. With that understanding I started Patch + Piece.
