Simply Sustainable Patchwork Style


- Perfectly Patchwork -

Once simply a sustainable way to use up left-over fabric scraps, the Patchwork style took the hippie fashion scene by storm and the trend still holds a special place in our hearts today! 

History of Patchwork 

While the original use of the patchwork style was honestly economical, the trend gained popularity in the 60’s with the free-spirited and individuality-loving hippie culture. This period saw a rise in traditional handicrafts as well as a fascination with fashion trends from cultures around the world. Patchwork checked both of those boxes.

As a technique, patchwork is easy to do yourself and is a great way to add your own personal touch to any outfit. Also, hippies embraced the beautiful bohemian prints which made up patchwork clothing because they brought some of the interest and intrigue of India and South Asian cultures into their wardrobe.

Uniquely You

Us hippies aren’t about fading into the background. We love to celebrate what makes us the rare, beautiful (some might say bizarre) souls we are! The patchwork trend is the perfect illustration of the unique spirit which hippies try to embody because each and every patchwork item is one of a kind. Handcrafted from many different sections of vibrant prints and patterns, pieces in the patchwork hippie trend are a ‘more the merrier’ approach to fashion we hope never goes out of style!


From skirts and blouses to handbags and hats, the patchwork trend is in full swing here at the Hippie Shop! If you’re looking for a one of a kind piece of art as unique as you, then patchwork is perfect!
