i love the word mélange. it sounds so much better than blend, combination, or mixture.
the above photos are all of textiles. but, their forms and functions change depending on where they are. an old flemish dress. curtains of a french-moroccan home. and scarves at a mosque in turkey.
i love seeing how culture and environment influence the differences in everyday objects. small details are what i like to look for.
i just got back from istanbul, and while it’s obviously the freshest in my mind, everything from all three adventures are all blurred together for me, so i thought i’d ease back into this journal with textiles. just a little warm-up post for all the stories i’ve got to share!
