Chenille Has Its Own Soulful Story to Tell…

If ever there were a fabric to tell a good story, it’s chenille. Few vintage chenille bedspreads still in existence today are “perfect” – most will have some type of “blemish”…Yet, they’re still perfectly “alive” and ready to be re-purposed into something special by a creative soul. ❦

Embrace Your Story…

Find Your Robe

A Life Well Lived

Like a lovable old piece of chenille, not one person walking this beautiful Earth is perfect. Under whatever titles we wear, whatever garments we wrap ourselves in, whatever facade we hide behind when we’re out in the world…we all get a little damaged and bruised sometimes.

We each show ourselves differently, yes. But we’re all hiding scars and old hurts and rough mends behind a thin, illusory veil. The CEO who seems polished and “invincible” might simply be hiding his “mends” better than someone with a weathered face that tells the story of a colorful life well lived.

The Tapestry of Life

Most of us have done things we’re proud of, and other things we’d prefer to forget…Thing is, each little “imperfection”, each little mend…and yes, the rips and tears too…make us who we are. That’s the beauty of life – and that’s the beauty of chenille and why we love it so much.

If you’re looking for perfection, it’s not the fabric for you. But if you want something warm and filled with the love and energy only many generations could create (and a dash of nostalgia, too!), well, then…you’ve found your match!

Chenille is often described as “wearing a hug” (and if you’ve ever donned a robe or wrapped yourself in an old chenille bedspread, you know what we’re talking about!)…

Big Chenille Hugs,

Footprints on the Sands of Time…

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
And departing leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints that perhaps another
Sailing o’er life’s solemn main
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother
Seeing shall take heart again.”

~ Longfellow
