Colourful Textiles


I love these Mexican Hand embroidered mantels from Market Import in Melbourne. These would look fantastic used as a tablecloth, bed throw or even made into cushions. Market Import is always on my agenda when I visit Melbourne and has a fantastic array of unique imported homewares and furniture. They now have an online shop which doesn't show everything they stock but it is still fantastic for those of us who don't live nearby!

Note to self: MUST visit Melbourne. Too bad it's sooo far from Virginia!

I agree with Barbara - move up Australia on the list of places to visit. I'll need to inform my family - first stop, Black & Spiro. Your blog is so enjoyable. Thanks. Michele
