My sister visited with a pile of wonderful textiles and goodies she bought down near the Burma border where the handcrafts are still handcrafted and the colours are colourful.
these are my presents from the collection......some of which collection is worthy of gallery wall space IMO.
i am sure the market sellers were sad to see her return to her own city
A carry bag that is highly decorated with minute stitches and decorative silver
i have a black embroided version of this lower bag that came from Vietnam.
i needed a lighter coloured one or summer . I keep my mobile/cell phone in it
hanging around my neck. Not sure what they were designed for but they suit me well !!
detail of the elephant stitching
detail of the little dangly thing on the side of the phone bag.
i just love all the colours
these photos are of embroidered inner soles for shoes.
i just love the colour combo and the pretty sort of flower pattern.
i will never use them in my shoes !!
