Isola Bella for Fall




Did you know Anthropologie's graphic, wooly crewelwork "Isola Bella" pillow also comes in chocolate-brown, for fall? 20" square. $58.

If you are passionate about textiles, and want to learn more about crewelwork or other techniques, here is a refresher on links I've recommended in the past:

The Textile Museum, located in Washington, D.C., offers a mini-dictionary of textile terms.
Los Angeles County Museum of Art for comprehensive online collections and resources.
Esther Fitzgerald Rare Textiles has a great glossary plus images of antique Indian palampores, suzanis and more.
Marla Mallett is a well-known textile expert; her site features about 1500 images of rugs, embroidered pieces, and tapestries.
Cora Ginsburg, a leading antique textile dealer, has exquisite finds and helpful sources.
