You all may remember this photo from February of last year when Diana and I visited Chengdu China and the Shu Embroidery factory. Well today I woke up to a pleasant surprise when a wonderful person left a note on my Flickr photostream that this image above had been posted on their own store blog called CHINA TRADITION SHOP. The author is from Chengdu so I was tickled to say the least that they found my image to be representative of this stunning artform.
On my last visit I had every intention to have a custom embroidery done of my Vincent, but it all became overwhelming when Diana and I got caught up in the beauty and mastery of the artform. For my upcoming trip in February I am better prepared and know more of what I want not. I can’t wait to see what they can do with Vinnie and the roses. These embroideries are TWO SIDED and all silk.
And two of the bindi birds in the previous post are complete and ready to fly to their new homes. They are available on the website
