It contains hand dyed vintage and contemporary textiles, ribbons, lace, trim and some space dyed wool yarn. There are two pieces of boiled wool blanket....ideal as a base for artwork, brooches or for needlefelting onto. There are a number of stamped sea creature images on dyed/tead dyed vintage textile and a stuffed calico fish sprayed with turquoise ink....you could decorate and embellish this to include in your artwork or journal or perhaps make into a brooch.
The paper ephemera comprises of vintage french book pages (I am not fluent so I know not if these are steamy bodice rippers), a page of text and a page of images from a vintage seashore book, a vintage cigarette card and a handmade tag....which you could deconsruct and use in your work.
The bundle is tied with a length of hand dyed sari silk ribbon...great for cutting or tearing and including in your work.
I have several of these bundles in this batch and your bundle will be selected from the batch and may not be the one featured in the images. They are all similar and would be great for a piece of sea themed artwork or sea themed junk journal. The edges of the textiles are raw or frayed and the dyes intentionally patchy and uneven as is the nature of this dyeing process. This adds to the charm and effect and gives a rich selection of colours to use in your work. The book pages are old and show age related wear and discolouration. These items are old and not neat or pristine, it is the intention for these supplies to look worn.
To give perspective the calico fish is approx 11.5cm long, the boiled wool pieces approx 13cm by 13cm.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
All orders are sent 1st class/2nd class/tracked/special delivery depending on order value and weight and size of package.
*shipping/postage fees....I am trying to perfect this part of the process to offer you the best deal but to also cover the cost of the order should items go astray in the postal system. Due to a substantial increase in shipping fees particularly to the United States as USPS have increased their prices I have unfortunately had to increase shipping fees as am unable to absorb these costs. Please don't hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions about this before buying, thank you.
