Look at these – aren’t they sweet!? all made from gorgeous printed fabrics by a lady called Apolline. She finishes each one by hand in her Studio based in Paris – aaah what a nice life!
Sourced from an online magazine called Selvedge Magazine – great for textile ideas and Interior Design Suggestions.

The resulting shawl measures 11 by 4 feet, and the colour is entirely natural. More here and here.
