|Just some of the velvets I fell in love with|
One was a famous paper marbler and the other was one of the family owners of the last handweavers of Venitian velvets - Luigi Bevilacqua. The person I met was their - 'me'. The technical guy who investigates the old velvets under the microscope, figures out the patterns, sets up the looms, and all things technical. To say we had a great discussion is a understatement! Watch this space for more yummy discussions and pictures of how things are made. I loved it as learned soooo much!
