Thank you @voguemagazine @voguerunway @the_lbp for including #MimiProber “In New York, Designers Take Cover in the Comfort and Dash of All-American Quilts”; quilting has truly taken on new forms on the #runway (and we are happy to have been showcasing our version of this inspiring textile @nyfw these past few seasons!). Antique textiles from the 18th to early 20th century, including quilting and hand embroidery, have been prominent parts of the Mimi Prober philosophy and at our core from the beginning. Our focus on the #handembroidered #crazyquilt textile, traditionally from the 19th century, where each fragment is a left over remnant from a previously loved piece transformed into a new form through hand embroidery, and staying true to our zero-waste philosophy. These textiles are treasures that should never be forgotten, usually including the signature of the maker or other special phrases or dates, these rare snapshots of history have their own individual story to tell. Honoring the hands that created the art.
