Patchwork: get inspired by the art of gathering fabrics

With the basic techniques – and a little creativity – you can make beautiful pieces!

Crafts are a great hobby. In addition to being able to manifest your imagination, you exercise your skills and, in addition, you can increase your income. Among the countless crafts that exist, patchwork is one of the most popular techniques.

Patchwork literally means “work with retail”. The idea is precisely this: to gather different pieces of fabric and create something new, beautiful and unique. From placemats to quilts, passing through bags and accessories, there are countless possibilities using this technique.

Whether you’re an apprentice or a veteran in the art of patchwork, check out the tips we’ve prepared below. The list of inspirations is unmissable!
