“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece”
– Claude Monet
This garment is named after the world famous, Paris born, impressionist Claude Monet (or Claude Oscar Monet) who lived from 1840 until 1926. He is known for his landscapes and garden views. He was a prolific practitioner of expressing one’s perceptions before nature and loved to paint outdoors. It is his impressionist touch and the garments he wears that are a great inspiration to us. Visiting Monet’s house and garden with his parents is one of Sebastiaan’s best childhood memories.
This garment will be made from the vintage blanket you have selected. These vintage blankets are 100% wool and collected via our recycling partners or via donations people have made.
The bindings are made from dead-stock ribbed fabrics, for each blanket our people at the Manufacturing Studio will find the best matching fabric.
At our Manufacturing Studio we will do our best to make sure only the good parts of the vintage blankets are used. In some cases our Recovery Studio will make small repairs to the old material to make sure we can upcycle as much materials as possible.
