Our sense of innovation and design has certainly changed over the years...

Use this salvaged embroidered yoke to make something new! It's from Afghanistan and the embroidery is beautiful! You can buy it here:

www.etsy.com/listing/173261478/vintage-dress-yoke-afghanistan-textileAfghan Tribal Arts has some stunning vintage textiles on its Etsy shop, including this salvaged yoke from an Afghan dress. The traditional outfit includes embroidered cuffs for the dress and for the matching pant cuffs worn underneath. When the dress wears out, they re-use the handworked parts in a new garment. See it here:

www.etsy.com/listing/173261478/vintage-dress-yoke-afghanistan-textile

This works well with another of our Sponsor offerings, the Afghan Dress pattern by Folkwear Patterns! You can get the pattern here: www.folkwear.com/products/afghan-nomad-dress?variant=34362988814

Cracked me up when I saw this! Such a clever play on words... We want everybody to develop a rug addiction! A great problem to have.... 🙂

Handmade rugs can be very expensive as a large one might take several months to make. Abdul has exceptional tribal rugs in many price ranges. What determines the price? How many knots per square inch, age, originality, and how much he paid for it. They are hypoallergenic and much better for your health than commercial synthetic rugs.

We do not carry them online at this time, but you can find them at Beads & Rugs By ATA in Paducah, Kentucky; Beads at Sturee Tribal Village in Pendleton, South Carolina and at Kabul To Marrakech LLC in Venice, Florida.

For smaller textiles, beads and tribal jewelry, check our shop on Etsy:

Happy Halloween from Artizan Made!Which do you celebrate? Both come from the same roots in Europe, All Hallowe's Eve, but developed differently. From Wikipedia: +++++ Halloween: It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church. Some believe, however, that Halloween began solely as a Christian holiday, separate from ancient festivals like Samhain. ++++++++++
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween +++++ Day of the Dead: The holiday is sometimes called Día de los Muertos in Anglophone countries, a back-translation of its original name, Día de Muertos. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico where the day is a public holiday. Prior to Spanish colonization in the 16th century, the celebration took place at the beginning of summer. Gradually, it was associated with October 31, November 1 and November 2 to coincide with the Western Christianity triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints' Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves. ++++++++++ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_Dead +++++ Decorations, crafts and costumes are fun and elaborate in both traditions. This album shows some of the works our members have carried which fit into the themes... Enjoy!

Featured on TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List! We have a couple of these small vests listed in our shop on Etsy, a robe and a few remnants: www.etsy.com/shop/afghantribalarts?section_id=5840733

The embroidery is exquisite. Tiny stitches in silk...Afghanistan- Vintage Ceremonial Kohistani or Nuristani Child's Vest by Afghan Tribal Arts

www.etsy.com/listing/114873973/afghanistan-vintage-ceremonial-kohistani

This baby's vest is traditional to the dress in the region: tiny cross stitch designs accented with white beads against black cotton fabric. Nuristan is thought to have been crossed by Alexander the Great. As there are many blondes in the area, they are considered to be his direct descendents. You can read more about them on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuristan_Province

Dimensions:
9" wide at the top (23 cm)
13" long (33 cm)
9.5" wide at the waist (24 cm)

$250

Nuristan, "Land of Light", is a province in the mountainous region of NorthEastern Afghanistan. Kohistan is on the other side of the border in Pakistan. Both share a common a history and have similar garments.

This site has some images of a woman's outfit in the same style: rugrabbit.com/Item/antique-afghan-nomadic-tribald-dress-nuristan-antique-complet-original-rare-af...

It is interesting to me that the Kuchi, who live in more desert areas, have bright, eye-catching clothing, while the mountain people, also highly decorated, go for a more subdued, earthy palette. Perhaps you want to be seen in the desert, concealed in the forest? At any rate, this little vest, baby size, is a beautiful piece! The stitches are tiny and even. It's in very good shape, although it could probably use a cleaning. We don't alter the pieces we sell, as collectors sometimes want the dirt and grit, but you are welcome to do so!

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

I am now being represented in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico!! Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the United States.The emphasis this month is Cosmos flowers. These three pieces include the flowers. Oreo - the new Bull calf was born at our ranch in New Mexico a month ago. I am now covering the entire art in thread with no free motion quilting. I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image. My art is now framed. My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint. It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!! ... See MoreSee Less

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.
