Today I start with Souleiado, a textile company & museum in Tarascon, France. The history of Souleiado is quit fascinating. I found a great website that explains the history of the company. click here for the website. Thank you to my dear friend Antoinette for introducing me to this French tradition.
I am familiar with the copper screens but I had never seen anything like the one on the right. It is like a woodblock but on a cylinder. Fascinating!Traditional woodblocksThe color and dye room
Antoinette and I enjoying a cold water outside the museum. It was so hot in France that our days were filled with cold drinks and many showers.
The museum was next door to a Souleiado store. I fell in love with these shoes. They were not the most comfortable and so I didn't buy them...but aren't they adorable!
