Fabric and Textiles

Fabrics and textiles (1)

Japanese Obi or sash

I too, like Ailsa of Where’s my Backpack, love visiting local markets and flea markets when travelling and feel the fabrics, textiles and handicrafts of a country really tell a story about their culture and way of life.

I often purchase fabrics as they are not only beautiful but can be displayed and used in a practical way when I get home. I have a rug from Morroco, throws and blankets from Peru, Wall hangings from Japan, table cloths from Tanzinia to name a few.

I love the colour they bring to my rooms and the memories of great trips and people that they hold.

I have used some of these pictures in previous posts but here they are as a collection.
