C&T Publishing’s newest addition to its popular Eco Tote collection, Sliced—Wheat Fields Eco Tote debuted in February 2013 and features a striking art quilt inspired by Van Gogh’s painting, Wheat Fields with Cypresses. A portion of proceeds from each sale is being donated to the NAMTA Council for Art Advocacy whose mission is “to sustain, strengthen and support the art material industry through advocacy, awareness, and increased funding of art and art education.”
Countless hours went into the making of the one-of-a-kind quilt featured on the tote. Designed and quilted by a staggeringly talented group of editors from C&T Publishing, the Wheat Fields with Cypresses image was enlarged and “sliced” into six vertical sections, which were then distributed among the artists.
Fabric choice and embellishments were left entirely up to each artist, so that each panel became a unique statement. Eventually, all six slices were brought together and quilted with stitching designed to unify the disparate pieces and combine them into one cohesive quilt.
C&T began growing its line of popular Eco Totes in response to increasing consumer demand for products made from recycled materials. In keeping with this green philosophy, the totes are constructed from 100% recycled polypropylene from discarded plastic water bottles. Eco Totes are a roomy 15.5″ x 15″ x 8″ size, with long handles, a flat reinforced bottom panel, and a zipper closure. Eco Totes are durable, waterproof, and tear-resistant.
