      any ideas on what this is?
    2. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      could this be a photographic print using thread?

      Asian tapestry?

      thanks Sunnybrook! i think that this is actually a photographic print - using a textile machine. i haven't found out anything about it, but i'm pretty sure that is what it is. i'd love to know more!
    5. textileguy, 5 years ago
      yes it is a photo print - probibly Japanese from the turn of the century.

      thank you textileguy! that is interesting. so textile machines were used to print photos way back then?
