The Michel Perrier collection


















This was for me one of the absolute highlights:
Michel Perrier is a french textile collector who hunts the country side for local items.
Hard to call these quilts, the support is wool and the embroidery is wool too.
The various sizes make them more usable as wallhangings or even table runners, but all of them have a naive and rustic charm.
Some of them have been found in central France.
That's for today ladies , more to come.....
