Who doesn’t love a great before-and-after story,
especially when it involves a vintage VW!
A while back, I got an order for a couple of Mojave Blankets in black.
The shipping address piqued my interest:
“Old Soul Motor Company”
so you know I just HAD to google that. . .
I found their Instagram, loaded with pics of dream-come-true vintage vehicles, so creatively and beautifully restored.
I was immediately a fan.
So I could not have been more thrilled when I saw those Blue Highways Mojave blankets turn up in Old Soul’s gorgeous restoration of a classic VW Westfalia camper van.
I love how this upholstery was designed and sewn in such a creative way, placing the pattern and even utilizing the blanket fringe.
I can't even imagine how many hours went into this project, look at what they started with!
It takes a special kind of vision to look at what it was BEFORE, imagine what it could be AFTER, and then have the skills to make it happen.
This project has so many special touches, from handmade leather detailing to one-of-a-kind vintage accessories and handcrafted macrame window treatment.
The great thing about upholstering with these blankets, besides their good looks, is the durability and resistance to dirt and stains.
Brandon Forsyth and crew at Old Soul Motor Company, and their talented collaborators, did an amazing job restoring this gem!
Wouldn't you love to travel in this beauty?
