When it comes to fashion, I’ve always been interested in different textures and fabrics. My first encounter with tapestry was when I stumbled upon a vintage purse bag in a material which I had described to my sister as ‘carpet like’. We were at Camberwell Market and I found the bag exciting and different – my sister on the other hand thought it gave severe grandma vibes. Regardless, I bought it. It was only ten dollars so the risk of grandma vibes outweighed the possibility of a pretty, functional and unique bag. Time went by and I started collecting more and more tapestry pieces – a vintage overnight bag I stumbled across in an op shop, a vintage tapestry backpack which I wore religiously to uni at one point in time, a vintage jewellery box with a tapestry cushion embedded in its wooden lid.. yes I owned a lot of odds and ends made out of this very fabric. I eventually got over this whole tapestry craze – I think I had too much of it at the same time. These days I barely ever touch any of the above mentioned bags – though one of my latest arrivals to my wardrobe (this dress) certainly rekindles old memories of when I was so fascinated with this ‘carpet like’ woven fabric.
