[ about Brut Cake ]
Brut Cake is a creative concept manifested in products, art and most importantly, life.
The word “ Brut ” originated from the Art Brut movement in France, and is an apt description of the raw, original and essential elements of Brut Cake products. “ Cake ” evokes images of the simple pleasures and happiness in life.
Inspired by the Art Brut concept, Brut Cake is devoted to bringing functional art into everyday living. The interrelationship between people and each of Brut Cake’s handcrafted object lays the foundation for thoughtful living.
“ We pursue the beauty of raw materials and hope you can appreciate the core act of creation, as well as the artist’s spirit, in each product from Brut Cake. ”

Brut Cake’s fabric products are made of Chinese old fabrics.
The Chinese old fabrics we use are antique cloth mostly from Southeast China, hand-woven more than 20 years ago with natural cotton. People use 72 complex production processes to ensure these fabrics are strong and durable. You can feel their special charm simply by touching them.
Brut Cake only crafts old fabric items in limited quantities. We use the simplest designs to represent the raw beauty of old fabrics, and echo the humble yet powerful beauty inherent in these interwoven fabric strips.

[ note ]
We hope you understand and accept that the actual color might be slightly different than what you see via your computer/laptop/phone screen.
As we remain the beauty and the conditions of old fabric, so it might not be completely flawless as new fabric. Therefore if you are a perfectionist, we reluctantly recommend you not to purchase our products.
Due to the old hand weaving techniques, some fabric may shrink during first wash. Ironing your old fabric can keep the shape fixed and flat. The color of deep blue fabric may fade slightly after washing. Chinese old fabric becomes softer after multiple washes, and nice to the touch. However, to wash those products lined with other materials, we suggest cleaning with soft brush then wiping with damped cloth instead of soaking in water.
