Beauty enriches, creativity sustains

We need to use textiles carefully, without wasting them. In previous centuries when cloth had to be woven  and clothes sewn together by hand, there was judicious use of fabric throughout all classes. Even the finest dresses of the richest would be cut down to be fashioned into another item of clothing.  Patchwork quilting made use of scraps of fabrics or areas of fabric from partially worn items. This happened throughout the world and the reuse of fabric rose to an art form Рlook at Amish patchwork quilts, look at Japanese Boro textiles Рbeauty from necessity.
