The patchwork quilts of our founder Whitney's great-grandmother Burnett inspired the colorwork motif for these slippers. Fat diamonds and pieced fabric, some new, some scraps from old garments, handstitched together to make something new and wonderful. There’s something so comforting about a quilt, and knit slippers on cool mornings are such cozy accessories, making the two a fine match.
