Collector's Item!!

This is a really rare and unique piece of American Apparel History. This quilt top was created in 1920's using Silk Jacquard Apparel Labels. The labels are a rare snapshot of New York history and the thriving apparel businesses during the early 20th Century. During a time when over 90% of apparel was made here in the U.S., almost all these companies are now gone.
Includes some labels from NY Department stores: Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman etc.

The labels are a stunning work of art; all silk jacquard with unique and amazing designs. This piece is very fragile. A few labels have started to degrade due to age. Colors are still very vivid and beautiful, there are hundreds of labels sewn together. This a quilt top, there is no backing.

Would look incredible framed and hung on a wall as art. Also great for graphic designer as inspiration.
