Rita Summers of Gone Rustic Studio finds great inspiration in working with textile techniques, especially eco dyeing.

Consuelo Underwood’s "Undocumented Border Tracks" site-specific wall installation is the tenth in her series of "Borderlines." She has created these installations at museums and galleries across the U.S. to bring awareness to the environmental impact of the border on flora and fauna. For this version, Fairfax High School and Clinton Middle School students contributed "ghost flowers" and "power wands."

The embroidery on this wallet is magnificent! Tiny, tiny stitches... Available in our shop on Etsy:

www.etsy.com/listing/186529491/afghanistan-vintage-embroidered-pashtunAfghanistan: Vintage Embroidered Pashtun Wallet or Pouch brought to us by Afghan Tribal Arts

www.etsy.com/listing/186529491/afghanistan-vintage-embroidered-pashtun

This wallet is from Afghanistan, made by the Pashtun Tribe, the largest ethnic minority of the country. Embroidered with cotton threads, the piece is decorated with glass seed beads along the edges. There are three pockets on the inside which would be used to hold jewelry or money. It appears to have been completely hand stitched. I see no evidence of machine sewing. It is in good condition. Background color is red, covered with very dense embroidery. The wallet folds to close with three snaps.

Dimensions:

8.75" x 4.75"
Metric: 22.5 cm x 12 cm

Estimated age: 1970's

Afghan Tribal Arts is both a TAFA Member and Sponsor and we thank Abdul for his support! Our sponsors keep TAFA tickin'!

Vintage and antiques bring us the talent and visions of those who have gone before us. The stories they could tell! Many of the techniques and materials used have been lost or are close to being lost as the elders around the world who make these works pass on. But, there is a great revival happening at the same time, documenting and teaching what can be reclaimed. Artizan works with several ethical vintage traders.

Shown here:
Steel Goat Studio (Mexican jewelry, toys, and other cultural objects)
Fairly (Pakistani ralli quilts and upcycled garments and accessories)
Afghan Tribal Arts (tribal jewelry, textiles, beads)

  • "I wish I could relate to fellow fiber artisans what I have witnessed since joining TAFA. This site, this concept, this group was born from the mind of one extraordinary visionary and has grown to become so much more under her watchful eye. I have been amended, improved, astounded and amazed by the energy and knowledge embodied in TAFA.

    There is NO other place online that will work harder to help expand your reach, enhance your online impact or improve your understanding of what to do and how to do it to improve your fiber-related business. I am proud to be a member AND a sponsor for TAFA and will continue long after other of my memberships is gone!"  Visit Cat's Shop
