The Paisley Shawl, Part 2

Throughout my years of experience I gained an appreciation for not only these shawls but for all antique fabrics in general. There were only two reasons for me to even consider cutting into one of these shawls: if a client purchased one we had in the shop and asked me to design and make something with it, or if one was damaged in sections but there was enough in good condition to make pillows or a lampshade or perhaps even recover an ottoman.

Pictured above and below are some of the actual pieces i custom made for clients using pieces of paisley shawls.
