Ok so I’m afraid there will be many follow ups. So this was taken while in class last tuesday, as we went to the Antonio Ratti Textile Center that reside at the Metropolitain. You have to make an appointment but it’s so worth it.
These underneath are samples made for men’s jacket from the 18th century (if I recall correctly) Those embroideries samples were made just for those men’s jacket. How incredible!
I do appologise for the poor quality of some of the photos… (there were taken rapidly and I wasn’t considering sharing them with you.)
