Rework Edition: Blank Supply x Alex Mill

We partnered with Willa of Blank Supply to create an *extremely limited* capsule of 100% handmade, one-of-a-kind work jackets, chinos, and hats — for him and for her — using her collection of vintage quilts (some dating back to the early 1900s!).

“No one else will have the same piece you have.”

-Willa, owner of Blank Supply

The Process

This capsule was born from a conversation between Willa and Somsack, our creative director (they worked together back in the day). Willa spent about 10 hours putting together each jacket: planning and placing the patterns so they lined up, making binding from the scraps to cover the interior seams, and hand embroidering the labels.

A Heritage Craft

“I learned how to quilt from my grandma. She is almost 100 and still has a strong sense of color and design. I love the romantic idea that something will still be around and cherished a few generations from now, especially if it is something I made with my hands."
