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!

Pretty vintage

This picture is from the Jan issue of the BBC Home and Antiques magazine. Lovely grey walls. The embroidered table cloth is one of ours, you can see more pictures of it on the website by clicking the title link
