textiles and tapestries

I couldn’t get over these Medieval creations. Above is William Morris’s If I Can, an embroidered tapestry hanging. Though a contemporary for his time, his nostalgia for craftsmanship is apparent. I, too, find nostalgia inescapable.

Ian O’Phelan’s Fruit Vines II

All of these images were found in one of my favorite blogs, The Textile Blog.
