- the story
To a T (Shirt).
You know you have them: that worn-in sorority shirt, the commemorative family reunion tee, or that over-washed t-shirt from your first music festival. And although it's been years--even decades--since you last wore them in public, you just can't let them go. Excavate your bottom drawer and give your beloved t-shirts the kind of treatment they deserve by framing them in a custom quilt. Whether you're yearning to relive your glory days on your college track team, or you'd like to capture the thrill of a road-trip where you purchased a shirt at every stop, this quilt allows you to stich your memories together in a warm and unique way. Each quilt is custom-made using 12 of your t-shirts. Shirts are backed with 20/80 cotton-polyester batting and patterned with 100% cotton materials in a complementary color range. Handmade by Kathy Carrier and her team in Indiana.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.
