Last night I got back from a trip to Eastern Europe. Grab a pillow and get comfortable: I will show you some of the fabrics that I saw in Moldova and Romania. There was pattern everywhere. There were woven rugs on the walls and on the floor.And there were stripes.
These rag rugs were all on the floor in one room, making an impromptu quilt.
Clothing in a market stall:
This woman was selling her knitting at the market and her dress was historical.
There were lots of women dressed in more everyday scarves and patterns.
Textiles are part of homes and restaurants.
And there are glorious textiles in the churches.
I love the cacophony of patterns. Harmonious cacophony!
The past and the present are woven together.
