Just Added – Fabulous African Textile Gallery

June 06, 2018

On WOVENSOULS.COM, the antique textiles gallery, I’ve just added several gorgeous textiles from various people groups in Africa.

This is a region I’d consciously avoided collecting from in the past as I was sure to be smitten so hard by the beauty of their art that my bank balance would have been in danger! Well – that shipped has sailed. Am smitten.

But since everything is stunning there, it is easy to exercise caution and NOT buy it all ….

The collection now has (what I think) are pieces that are both stunning and rare. And for that reason not all are for sale yet…

Have a look!
