Last weekend was our monthly carboot hunt in Chiswick, and I found this beautiful antique hemp grain sack for a steal. It's French and has been darned and mended so many times that it is starting to resemble a patchwork or the the Japanese boro textiles that I drool over at Sri Threads. It's pieces like these that you just want to frame, it is so exquisite.
By the way, I have been loving listening to these incredible postcasts by Maiwa called Voices on Cloth. I'm day dreaming whilst sewing up a storm for my market stall in the school yard at Broadway Market tomorrow.
