A Simple Handmade Closet Accessory

Spotted at the Arts & Science store in Galerie Vivienne in Paris: linen hanger covers for a uniform closet. Here’s a closer look:

Above: The handmade covers hold up the shapeless jackets (shapeless in a good way) and silk pieces. Photographs by Alexa Hotz for Remodelista.

Above: Using a rustic but soft woven linen fabric sourced from Japan, the covers slip over the hangers (even wire dry cleaner’s wire hangers look good with this treatment).

Above: From the spring collection, a printed silk scarf is wrapped around one hanger and stands out from the others.

This is an excellent way to save clothing from fading on the shoulders, especially black and blues (the one colour that fades the quickest).
I have made many similar covers. Some from a firm cotton in one colour which tones down the business of a closet and others from a 100 percent floral cotton sheet.
There are many fabric shops having bundled remnants which are inexpensive.

Looks good. I only use covered coat hangers myself.

If you just want to keep a slippery item on a hanger, clothes pins work.
