Hildegard saved her mother’s lambswool coat for years. It was the one possession she brought back from Germany when her mother passed. The coat was beautiful and meaningful, but not able to be worn.
Hildegard decided that she wanted her grandchildren to have a memory of her mother. We created three pillows from the coat, incorporating the amazing fur collar and original tag.
From a coat that was tucked away in storage, three heirloom pieces were created to pass through the generations. When the gift is given, so is the story, helping younger members of the family feel connected to those who have come before them.
