Still Life With Throw
...or just a throw, to be brutal.
This blip is a response to disdatdudda's blip of today of a fine piece of tie and dye, and the following comments:
it's indigo "tie & dye" fabric...very late 1960s and early 1970s...janis joplin...joe cocker...but you're too young to know....ah! nostalgia...
I'm not too young to know, but hadn't realised it had died out (no pun intended). In fact I have a throw not dissimilar to this; is it out of fashion?
no it hasn't died out.. but what's definitely out of fashion is crafts...but nostalgia ain't!!
(would love to see your throw...bet it's made somewhere else. unless...)
Memory plays funny tricks. A look at my throw reveals the similarities end at the colours. It isn't tie-die so much as printed images of fishes and the like. It has a small label with a picture of an elephant sedan and the legend Chanon Chowk, so probably not made in Wiltshire :)
Perhaps I'll blip it, but following my inspection it went straight in the wash.
i knew it!!! (not made in wilshire)
bet you hadn't ever really seen it with your glasses on; no worries, it'll dry soon enough to be blipped...
Well, it is dry now, so here it is.
