Our best patchwork picks right now.

What excites us the most? Conscious contemporary style. Modern and easy looks that are somehow more sustainable – being timeless, sustainably produced, vintage or in some other way a better choice. This is The Make It Last Edits, where we bring you our favorite conscious styles right now. Our tenth theme is patchwork.
