I have always been fascinated by gobelin tapestries for their ability to quietly, yet marvelously capture a moment in time and tell a captivating story.
I am even more intrigued when I come to think how people had invented gobelin tapestries ages ago out of pure necessity to ward off the cold by hanging them onto stone walls and the path they trod to become valuable possessions of the aristocracy.
So, from this point in time, they have had quite an interesting evolution. To save them from the tooth of time and oblivion, and instead of filling the landfills with these once precious textiles, people have started repurpusing them and the finished items are truly astonishing.
There is a seller on etsy called Stars Wear, who uses them to create the most unique jackets and skirts that really push me into the mood to go out to thrift shops and maybe salvage something interesting I could put my hands onto.
