Suddenly and swiftly; quite without warning - so quick that it is actually frightening me; I've fallen in love with textiles. In particular - used, aged, frayed, worn, torn, faded and forgotten textiles. Cigarette burns and coffee spots. Tea stains and mustard blotches. I love the textile artists (geniuses) who take these sad, lonely fabrics to make them 'of importance again'. Their shoulders are back and their head held high. A new 'design' life. I've also found a wonderful textile blog called Fibercopia and blog post about London's new tartan.....does your city have a tartan?
