Chenille Chateau

Manipulating fabrics has been a lifelong love. Its latest manifestation is through antique and vintage chenille. Chenille bedspreads were fashioned by hand in the early twentieth century, but by mid century most spreads were made by machine.

Yes, these cottony soft bedspreads were made in America many decades ago, when products were constructed very, very well. I purchase the best spreads I can find and then soak and gently launder them to bring them back, as close as possible, to their original beauty. These gorgeous spreads are then folded and placed within "The Great Wall of Chenille", a floor to ceiling storage area in my studio, ready to be chosen for the next project. Part of this delightful collection is shown in the above photos.

The original designs in these old bedspreads are particularly important to me. In my work I choose to highlight the amazing shapes and colors, and carefully cut and sew the strongest, prettiest parts of the bedspreads that I have collected. The results are products that are both precisely crafted and uniquely beautiful. Heirloom quality!

It is my joy to bring some of my work to Etsy. Made - again - in America.

Welcome to Chenille Chateau!

Here you will find meticulously handcrafted items made from gorgeous vintage textiles, most often from vintage chenille bedspreads. I also use other textiles found in my travels and at auctions/estate sales.

Repurposing beautiful vintage fabric is my delightful occupation!
