Item details

One of a Kind item
The Artquilt is absolutely unique and was made by the textile artist Daniela Witt in her studio in Leipzig.

The quilt top is made of recycled jeans trousers, some of which show signs of wear and tear, thus creating 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 in the seam was done with a sewing machine.

The filling is made of soya/cotton molton. The back and the border are made of cotton.
The quilt is machine washable at 30 °C. This gives it its typical "crinkle" effect.

As a decorative element in the living or working area, this quilt is an absolute eye-catcher!

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.
