Item details

One of a Kind item
This denim quilt is absolutely unique and was made by textile artist Daniela Witt in Leipzig.

The quilt top is made of recycled denim trousers, some of which show signs of wear and tear and thus make up the unique characteristic of the wall hanging.
The border and the hanging were sewn by hand, the sewing together of the strips and the quilting was done with a sewing machine.

The filling is made of 100% cotton molleton. The back was also pieced together from different cotton fabrics.

The blanket can be washed at 30 degrees. Der Quilt verfügt an der Rückseite über einen Schlauch um ihn aufhängen zu können aber er eignet sich auch als Überwurf für das Bett.

Die Bekleidungstechnikerin und Textilkünstlerin Daniela Witt hat sich auf die Technik des Patchworks spezialisiert, das heißt Stoffe werden zerschnitten und neu zusammengefügt. Der Stoff wird dabei aus seinem ursprünglichen Zusammenhang gerissen und in einen neuen Kontext gesetzt, dadurch entstehen ungewöhnliche Effekte bzw. fehlerhafte Dinge wie Löcher/ geflickte Stellen/ Verfärbungen rücken in den Fokus und bekommen eine neue gestalterische Komponente. Durch das Spiel mit Farben und Formen lassen sich unzählige Variationen erzeugen, die spannende Bilder ergeben. Als Textilien für die Oberseite werden hauptsächlich Altkleider verwendet, vor allem abgetragene Jeanshosen haben es ihr angetan, da die Gebrauchsspuren der ausrangierten Klamotten Geschichten vom Vorleben erzählen. Die Quilts entstehen in ihrem Atelier in Leipzig.

After I had learned a lot of clothing industry during my apprenticeship, subsequent studies and various work placement I noted that I have much more pleasure cutting all imaginable textile materials and putting them in a new unexpected context.

For me, the patchwork quilt is the ideal medium for merging colour, material and pattern into a complex visual mesh, thereby emphasising and preserving the beauty of this material. In order to preserve the current zeitgeist, I mainly use old clothes for my work. My attention is drawn at the visible traces of use such as patches, scrapes and holes, because they tell stories from the past life of the textiles and their wearers.

Knowing how much energy and work has to be used for the production of clothing, sustainable resource-saving use of textiles is particularly important to me.
