As many already know I have a big passion for vintage and old textiles, mostly handwoven towels, white-in-white embroidery and bobbinlace.
Therefore I love the fleamarkets and the secondhand shops. So everywhere I go I have to visit. In Copenhagen I have a favorite shop; Decor and the owner Lone have been collecting old/vintage textiles, accessories and clothes for many years. I simple love popping in there and I never go out without buying something.
Last weekend I found these lovely items.
Two small pieces.
The one to the right is perhaps bobbinlace. In about one month I'm going to start a course in bobbinlace. My Grandmother taught me this technique when I was 14 years, so I almost can't wait to get started again.
A collar in bobbinlace.
A collar in Hedebo embroidery. I love this technique.
This textile is in metal, I'm not sure of the technique, perhaps bobbinlace. I like the difference in the thick and thin yarn used to make it.
