"Tulip Mania" Upcycled Dutch Camo Jacket


To understand this jacket, we’ll need a quick history lesson first. In 17th-century Netherlands, wealthy Dutch society started to have a thing for tulips. The tulips that were striped or speckled (caused by a virus) were rare, so their value skyrocketed, and Tulip Mania was born. People were buying tulips that cost as much as a nice house, and some were worth more than an entire year’s salary of a skilled artisan. After a few years, the tulip bubble burst. Prices fell drastically, and the tulip trade came to a grinding halt. So with that explanation in mind, look at the jacket art again, but this time think digital currency and market fluctuations. Can you think of any modern-day "Tulip Manias?"
