Textile of the Week


19th-Century Indian Dolman Given to the V & A by TRH The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester

Thanks Janet for reminding me to type "Kashmir" in the Victoria & Albert search box. Some amazing Indian textiles and objects are included in the Museum's collection. Don't the oranges, aquas, greens and purples look so fresh? Like the inspiration behind something new from Lee Jofa.

so pretty. i have a throw that reminds me of this. it was silk, and the maid tossed it into the washing machine, thereby turning it to felt.

i still love it. the colors are beautiful!

This is divine! There are just so many fabulous goodies at the V&A.

Have been absent for a few days and come back to find all sorts of wonderful things ~ Suzani embroidery, Mugual designs, and all sorts of delicious items to put me in the holiday spirit! Cheers!
