NEW YORK, N.Y. - The U.S. snowboarders will be showing off a patchwork of styles in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Their uniforms, unveiled by manufacturer Burton Tuesday night, are built around the competition jacket with squares of stars, stripes and plaids.
The design was inspired by a handcrafted patchwork quilt spotted at an antiques fair, according to the Vermont-based company. The way the fabric is printed, no two items with the quilt fabric are quite the same.
