Textiles at the Beijing show

Interesting to see the what was displayed in the booths and what the trends might be in Chinese patchwork. It was as varied and diverse as an Australian show with traditional and art quilting plus bags which are very popular. Above is a selection of dyed fabric from a booth. The fabric was sold as yardage for your projects.
Indigo was featured at a few booths that carried ethnic minority made items. In the past it was the colour of workers garments so is not as popular as it is in the West. Above photo was taken with permission from Wei Xianglong who has an online store
Now if only I could read Chinese!
More lovely jewellery items using old embroidered textiles.

 Old pieces from another booth. Just not enough time to study it all and get sufficient information on origin.
