A little bundle of antique silk joy
I had shared glimpses of this beautiful bundle of 1800s silk samples on my instagram which I happened upon at the recent textile flea market in Lyon. I nearly didn't see them, they were wrapped in string, all twisted and dusty hiding underneath a stack of broderie papers. But I glimpsed a slice of pattern and dug them out. It wasn't until I got home, hours later, that I dared untie and discover the different morsels. I thought you might like to see the different textile designs that lay within so hope you enjoy.
