On a Quest for Antique Textiles – December 2018

 It is time again to replenish the stock of antique textiles, here at Elegance Lamps. This year, I’m headed to Spain and Portugal in search of historic textiles.

I hear that there over 160 textile machinery companies in Spain which means they have a history of mastery in this industry.  Perhaps I will find some lovely antique silk mantillas, or tile fabrics rich with vibrant color!

The Portuguese are known for their hand-woven linen, and I simply cannot wait to see this! I’m also incredibly curious to learn the feel of cork fabric. In addition, there is absolutely no doubt that I’m very eager to see Portuguese embroidery in person.

I’ll post trip photos of textile finds on the Elegance Lamps Facebook paged located here: https://www.facebook.com/EleganceLampsSeattle
