for me it was a study in simplicity and all the details that go into making it seem simple.

smocking, hand stitching, classic design, natural fibers and mixing materials.

uneven smocking,  tiny details

one side cotton velvet and the other linen

classic stitches, hand sewn and raw edges

linen comforter with hand-stitched  silk velvet edge

silk and linen comforters

hand stitched cotton toile quilt

ditzy french florals

exacting hand sewn edges on linen scallops

stiff raw linen scallops

italian hand knotted fringe

supersoft linen

linen by the yard

vintage linen was available too

unfinished edges on raw linen ruffles

linen curtains

simple engineering

bright colors, ancient patterns from tibet, the himalayas, polynesian islands and india.

these blankets were one of a kind and and i kept finding them throughout the show. i’m only realizing now how much i wanted so many of them!
