Embroidered shoes

Heels apart I love these shoes, embroidered using the traditional Kalotaszeg technique. This photograph was taken in the Ethnographic museum in Budapest just before christmas. Not a very good picture I am afraid as I wasnt able to loose the reflection from the glass display cabinet.
Jeremy at Tezla shoes has agreed to make some trainers from embroidered fabric. We're using a variation of traditional Kalotaszeg motifs hand embroidered on vintage linen. Watch this space!
