Incorporating vintage chenille for bath robes, quilts and baby blankets opens up a creative vortex!

Unlike modern, ho-hum bedspreads that wear out quickly and have to be tossed away, vintage chenille is a quality fabric that offers up endless choices of color, textures and patterns for all your upcycling and repurposing ideas!

After all, we like to say: consider that many chenille bedspreads from the 1940s-1960s era are still going strong, widely available for sale, and known for their durability – that’s pretty impressive for a fabric that’s over a half-century old.

With the super soft and fluffy tufts of vintage chenille, lounging in an upcycled chenille bathrobe gives relaxing an entirely new and contemporary meaning!

Best of all, they’re one of a kind – unique to you. View our extensive collection of vintage chenille robes and you’ll see that color choices are infinite, each one beautiful in its own right, with a style to match every personality: bold…feminine…mystic…masculine….introvert….extrovert…
