textiles at Kulturen

Whenever I end up in Kulturen (our nearest open-air museum), I try to sneak into  the “textile study chamber” – a permanent exhibition of old weavings, embroidered objects and folk costumes.

Have a look at this embroidered pillow from Kulturen,  dated 1790,  wool on wool (pictures are clickable for slightly larger size). And another one and just one more .
